We are very proud of our programme of extra-curricular activities. The range of experiences offered means there is something for everyone; sport, music, Duke of Edinburgh, the school show, student leadership, debating clubs, the list is endless. Within these fields, levels of participation are high, standards of excellence are achieved and all of this is made possible by the staff who give willingly of their time and the students who demonstrate real enthusiasm. A good example is the annual school show, at Billingham Forum Theatre, which features over 100 students on and behind stage, delivering a professional musical and a spectacle for the wider school community to enjoy.
We run an extensive programme of residential and day visits to complement and enhance learning for each year group. Students have the opportunity to visit Andorra, Iceland, Paris, Strasbourg, Switzerland, the West End, Naples and New York, among many others and including destinations much closer to home! The activities range from skiing and white water rafting, to the development of language skills, visits to theatres and galleries, geography field work, musical tours, and competitions.
In terms of sport, Conyers runs a wide range of teams for different age groups and has a large trophy cabinet to mark our successes on the sports field and track.
And it is not only students who can benefit from our extra-curricular provision. Through ‘Go Sport’ we provide opportunities for members of the wider community to access our sport and health facilities such as football, gymnastics, dance and Go Karting. With ‘Go Music’ we provide tuition for nearly 250 students in Conyers and local primary schools for brass, woodwind, guitar and choir. Highlights of our musical calendar include the performance by the band and choir at Disneyland Paris and our annual Summer Concert.
