After School Activities

Extra Curricular Activities

'An activity at a school pursued in addition to the normal course of study'

Before School 8am-8.40am

Lunchtime - 1.20pm -1.50pm

After School - 3pm -4pm (sometimes later activity depending)

Trips/excursions outside of school hours

Most 'in school' activities are free, however some require a small monetary contribution

The school extends beyond the normal curriculum by means of clubs and activities, sporting and cultural. As well as providing opportunities for enjoyable and worthwhile experiences the extra curricular dimension also helps to cement the good pupil/teacher relationships which are the cornerstones of the success of the school.

Our aim is that every pupil is involved in some sort of extra-curricular activity. Our sports teams do particularly well in competitions with other schools. Our music and drama productions are of the highest standard. There are also special interest clubs, homework clubs, coursework clinics and revision sessions prior to examinations.

There is a significant programme of Educational Visits both at Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4, with notable trips to Fairthorne Manor and Paris in Year 7 and then an opportunity to visit Iceland, the Jurassic coast and Kenya at Key Stage 4. Our extra-curricular programme is a particularly strong area of the school highlighted in our latest OFSTED inspection.

Transport home after an activity

The Romsey School 'Late Bus'

These buses run on Monday to Thursday after school and leave at 4.15pm. Pupils can book onto the bus by going to Admin 2 and signing up. They need to do this in advance of their journey ideally the day before but by breaktime at the very latest on the day. There is a charge of £2 per journey.

There are two buses - a local one covering Romsey and outlying areas and the other is to Southampton.
