We are really proud of our extra-curricular provision, which forms a significant part of our educational offer as part of our Character Development Programme and with links to personal development and the curriculum as well.

This includes clubs, drama, e-team, music, outdoor education, sport, student leadership, volunteering and so much more.

Much of our programme is run through the school for Beechen Cliff students, though increasingly we also running joint activities with other local schools and, in particular, with Hayesfield and St Marks as part of the Bath Hub.

The quality of our provision was referenced in our 2023 OFSTED report which states:

“Beechen Cliff has a proud tradition of offering a wide range of extra-curricular activities. Pupils participate well in an array of clubs, from beekeeping to the Combined Cadet Force. The school works closely with the local rugby team to develop promising players, for example. Many pupils get involved in challenges and volunteering, such as through the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.”

Activities Week 2024

We are really pleased to be able to share with you the plans and the programme for Beechen Cliff’s Activities Week 2024.

This year we have built upon the successes of the past and are offering a range of options as has been discussed in previous letters.  This will mean there will be an element of choice, via a Google Form with the number of options increasing as the boys make their way through the school.  Boys will need to rank order their activities from most preferred to least with the cost and number of available places published within the booklets.

Those participating in the residential trips to Spain, Germany and Capel Curig will not need to complete the form as their activities last the duration of Activities Week and they have been automatically allocated to these in advance.

The booklets for each year, which are linked below, explain how the process will work in more detail.  It is important to note that, given their capacity, some activities will be oversubscribed and where possible we will endeavour to ensure that boys get as many of their first choice options as we can. We can assure you that no allocations will be conducted on a first come first served basis.

Important information and key dates are as follows:

  • Friday 10th May – Webpage goes live, activities and options booklets are available
  • Please read the booklet and view what is on offer for your son during Activities Week 2024, discuss it with him and decide on a rank order of the activities from most preferred to least.
  • Week beginning Monday 13th May – Activities week assemblies with Years 7, 8 & 9
  • Monday 13th May (17:00) – Activities week selection opens (17:00) please complete the Google Form that will arrive in your inbox that day, no payments are required at this time
  • Thursday 16th May (17:00) – Google Form closes and allocation process begins
  • Week beginning 20th May – Activity allocations are released and Parentpay opens
  • Monday 10th June (17:00) – Parentpay closes and payments must be complete

It promises to be a brilliant week with the boys collaborating and competing against each other to conclude the year.  

May we remind you that all selections need to be made by Thursday 16th May at 17:00.
