Extended Curriculum

At St. Aidan’s we believe strongly that the school should make opportunities for students to achieve outside the classroom and to share interests and enthusiasms with fellow students. We use the term ‘extended curriculum’ to describe the vast range of clubs, activities and trips on offer beyond the formal curriculum.

Charities

St. Aidan’s Charity Committee

The Charity Committee meets regularly (once a month) to discuss which charities to support, how to raise funds within the school community and to break down the tasks into working groups. Charity Form Representatives then report back to their Form groups to ensure all students are aware of the charitable activities decided upon by the committee as a whole. Read more…
