hi there are lots of clubs and they are at lunchtime and after school. Dance club is after school for an hour plus in Y8 you can audition for the dance company which meets after school on Weds. Drama club is after school but usually every other week because lots do it so they split it. Choir, orchestra at lunchtimes, cheerleading lunchtimes, lots of sports clubs lunchtimes, teams sometimes practice or have games after school. There are clubs for different subjects too eg y7 art club, history club etc
I have found Ribston very reliable for clubs with something for everyone...rowing with Crypt, film club where they show films at lunchtime and sell sweets (every 2 weeks) loads and they don't fizzle out like at some schools. My DD says it's brilliant for clubs and the 6th form are great fun and organise things for the rest of the school regularly eg all the fun charity days etc staff and student panto.. things like that. Hope that helps.
Thanks very much for the information - I wish we had had so many clubs when I was at school! She is particularly interested in dance, mainly ballet. I was hoping that it would be lunchtimes instead of after school. We live in Cheltenham and she will probably be using the "grammar bus" which only returns once a day so it would mean me driving across to get her. Like most of us though I'm already Mum's Taxi Service so one more journey won't make too much difference. She's got to get in first though!
