Enrichment and Clubs

All too often learning is seen as something that is to do with tests and exams.

The breadth of our extra curricular offer is remarkable and whether playing for a sports team or trekking across Dartmoor as part of  the Ten Tors Challenge, we seek to help everyone in the school really enjoy learning so that they achieve more than they ever believed possible.

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award

running_waterI believe that our definition of learning has to be a lot broader than this and that we should see the opportunity to learn in most circumstances.

Our desire to make learning irresistible means that we look way beyond the classroom and this section of the website introduces you to just some of the amazing opportunities on offer at The John of Gaunt School.
