Extra Curricular

All staff and pupils of St Paul's are encouraged to fulfil their ministry and use their talents to the full so that they can bring Christ to each other and to the wider community of the school. Extra-Curricular activities are about “fun, friendship and futures for all” and we can see a clear link in increased academic performance from pupils who more regularly attend Extra-Curricular activities.

Pupil testimonials:

  •    “It gets you into good habits for older years.”

  •    “You and your friend can have fun and it will improve your grades.”

  •    “If there is nothing to do at home, why not try developing other skills? The best way to find others and make friends is by doing fun things in clubs with people who like doing what you like too."

  •    “It's fun. It's fair. It's fabulous.”

Curriculum enhancement clubs:

Where an extra-curricular activity directly contributes to the core curriculum, this is called “curriculum enhancement”. This might be for pupils on a specific course, subject area or year group. 

Curriculum enrichment clubs:

Where a member of staff shares a passion, hobby or interest and provides an opportunity to enrich pupils learning which is not directly linked to the core curriculum, this is called “curriculum enrichment”.

MK Gallery Paint Park (until 1st March)

MK Gallery’s Project Space is hosting Paint Park - a dynamic installation created by artist, Alison Goodyear, which explores the possibilities of ‘phygital’ painting, where digital and physical painting intersect.

Paint Park is an experimental installation of immersive virtual and physical paintings.  The works use physical materials combined with new technologies in an attempt to test what we understand as painting today. This installation of both virtual and physical abstract paintings provides the opportunity for audiences to plunge into a fantastical realm, to dip in and out of real and digital environments, through an ‘emerging’ playground of paintings. Visitors are invited to don VR headsets and explore the works and have a go at creating one of their own (age 11+)

Outdoor education:

St Paul’s also offers a number of opportunities for pupils to enrich their learning experience through outdoor education.  You can find out more here.
