Clubs & Activities
Life at RGS is far from all academic work and students are encouraged to make the most of the vast menu of opportunities available to them.
RGS’ extra-curricular offer is the heartbeat of the school and we hope that parents will join us in encouraging students to get involved in whichever club or activity appeals. It’s never too late to try something new and staff are always keen to hear from the students themselves about starting up new clubs and ventures.
Through trying something new, developing established hobbies or embarking on programmes such as the Duke of Edinburgh (DofE) Awards or the Combined Cadet Force, students gain vital life skills, learn about themselves and make friendships beyond their immediate network, often friendships that last a lifetime. As many Upper Sixth Form students will testify, there’s nothing like successfully navigating the Brecon Beacons in the pouring rain to give you confidence and build your character.
Exam results will help to open doors of opportunity but the character and confidence developed, for example, on the sports field, in the Model United Nations or through performing on stage are essential to allow those opportunities to be maximised.
Students wishing to join or find out more about a club or activity should speak to the member of staff or student in charge or their Form Tutor. Please refer to the separate termly schedule for details of the clubs running at any given time (available on the parents page). Clubs and activities are subject to change throughout the school year and not all clubs run all year.
