Enrichment

The school provides an extensive range of enrichment opportunities for students.

Extra-curricular activities take place throughout the year in all subject areas and a termly extra- curricular timetable is produced for students and parents.

Some extra-curricular activities allow students to compete against other schools both locally and nationally. We have an wide range of sports teams for both boys and girls including football, netball, rugby, tennis, badminton, cricket, rounders, swimming, basketball, athletics including sports hall athletics and cross country and trampolining. In addition to sports teams, students also have the opportunity to compete in Chess, Engineering, Maths, Science, English and Languages competitions.

Regular reward trips are organised for students throughout the year to reward those students who continue to work hard and show exemplary behaviour throughout the year. These trips tend to take place at the end of each term to celebrate student achievement throughout the term.

We also provide students with the opportunity to be involved in numerous enrichment trips throughout their time at Chesterfield High School. These include:

  • Ski trip to Austria
  • Expressive Arts trips to New York, Paris and Castlehead
  • Netball Tours to Florida
  • English Visit to Harry Potter World, London
  • Numerous theatre visits to Liverpool, Manchester and London
  • History trip to Autswich
  • Modern Foreign Language trips to Spain and France
  • The Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme is also provided for students from Years 9-13.

Chesterfield High School encourages all students to embrace the enrichment opportunities provided for students and they are cordially rewarded for their involvement in extra- curricular clubs and teams.
