    What Extra-Curricular activities will you pick?

    To complement our ambitious curriculum Finham Park School offers an extensive range and depth of Extra Curricular Activities not only to allow students the opportunity to take their learning and enjoyment further within a particular subject and but also to discover new opportunities that they may not have had before. Through after school clubs, educational visits and residential visits we aim to provide a vast array of opportunities that help to develop a student’s cultural capital so that each and every one of them is knowledgeable about a wide range of culture, is comfortable discussing its value and merits, and has been given a vast array of experiences and access to help them develop their own personal skill set.
