Extra Curricular

We want to make your experience at St Philip’s School to be as enriching as possible. As well as the curriculum you will study, you have the opportunity to get involved in a fantastic range of sports activities, events and extra-curricular activities to make your time with us enjoyable and fulfilling.

An array of enrichment opportunities is provided within and beyond the school day; for example, residential trips in Years 8, 10 and Post-16 and after school activity clubs.

Students develop very high levels of positive behaviour and feel extremely safe. They are very considerate, very respectful and caring of others and highly positive about learning.
