Our Extra-Curricular Programme

Why is the extra-curricular programme so important to our pupils’ education?

“Hymers College is one of the most successful co-educational schools in the north of England with a long tradition in developing individual talent and of encouraging high aspirations.

Our pupils are bright, enthusiastic and bring with them a joy of life and a spirit of curiosity which makes education a real pleasure, Inspirational teaching and a deep commitment to pastoral care create an atmosphere in which individual talents and creativity flourish, allowing pupils to grow in confidence and understanding.

Our extra-curricular programme plays a central part to this. The opportunity to engage in a wide and varied ranged of trips, expeditions and activities allows pupils to develop their self-awareness, confidence, skills and competence in all sorts of ways and contributes significantly to the rounded individuals they become. For many, the world outside the formal academic curriculum will provide the key to their future lives”- Headmaster – Mr David Elstone
