School life goes on long after the final bell has sounded.
Every evening there is a wealth of activities across every department at some point throughout the year. Whether or not you want to learn a new skill, develop existing ones; represent your school; meet new people or just turn up and have fun, with 42 different clubs running last year there really is something for everyone.
Doing extra-curricular things has helped my confidence enormously.
It helps with leadership skills, public speaking, meeting new people, working as a team.
Enrichment enhances, improves and makes something more rewarding. A central part of our enrichment programme is the enrichment week that takes place during the last week of the summer term.
Every student and member of staff takes part and students can choose from a variety of activities based either at school, in the local area or much further afield.

Area of Excellence
Varndean School have been recognised nationally as having an Area of Excellence for character education by independent charity for school improvement, Challenge Partners and our enrichment programme forms an important aspect of this.
