Learning and Developing Together for Achievement

Extra Curricular

NRHS recognise the importance of children and young people understanding that they are responsible for their own behaviour and that accountability begins with having a choice.  Making choice is an explicit part of our school offer empowers children and young people to value their choices and gives them a sense of self-advocacy, which is essential for good mental health. This weekly session gives Key Stage 3 and 4 pupils an opportunity to practice the skill of making choices that both benefit them and expand their experiences in a relaxed and enjoyable way.

So far, these activities have included:


  • Boxing
  • Music technology
  • Singing
  • Board games
  • Pool
  • Art and craft
  • Swimming
  • Basketball
  • Football
  • Computer gaming

We also have ‘Girls Time’ – a female only space run by the school counsellor where Key Stage 4 girls can enjoy time together engaging in activities specific to their interests.  This is led by the school counsellor and supported by other female staff.
