To understand the importance of the co-curriculum in Sixth Form is to understand what makes St Edmund’s such a unique school.
We offer one of the widest and most varied co-curricular programmes in Kent; students can choose anything from horse riding to chess, mindfulness to debating, ground-breaking drama and outstanding musical activities, and some exceptional sporting opportunities. Our programme is flexible and constantly evolving to reflect student interests and passions, with new clubs and societies starting each term at the request of students, and going on to thrive.
In addition, all students enjoy outdoor education and work experience weeks, with many active on schemes such as Duke of Edinburgh and the Combined Cadet Force for their entire time with us. All students are encouraged to engage with the surrounding community, understand and develop skills for working together, and appreciate the importance of serving others.
As well as being fun, the programme has a strong focus on personal development. Students who involve themselves in the co-curriculum often find that they excel in their academic studies, and acquire the confidence and ability to excel professionally and personally.
Co-curricular activities are all about balance, and at St Edmund’s there is something for everybody.
