Co-curricular activities play a vital role in the holistic development of your child, offering immense added value to their overall growth and well-being

Whilst the wide range of curricular subjects in Junior Years gives your child a breadth and depth of learning, it is the choice of co-curricular opportunities and trips that help to ensure they have a richer experience, learning new skills and becoming fully rounded individuals.

Many activities take place at lunchtime such as Junior Choir, Tutti Strings, Construction Club, Digital Leaders and Table Tennis and you can arrange individual Music lessons during the school day too. Musical concerts are held at Trinity Hall and Dundee’s Caird Hall throughout the year and we have a Junior Years Musical every two years. Trips can be local for pupils in L1 to L5 or further afield when you are in L6 and L7.

The personal, social and health benefits of taking part in sporting activities are well recognised, so we give our pupils in the Junior Years plenty of opportunity to get involved in sport in the co-curriculum.

From L4 upwards, opportunities include badminton, netball, hockey and rugby. In netball, hockey and rugby, our teams play competitive fixtures against other schools and clubs. From L6 onwards, pupils also have the opportunity to join the Dundee Junior Curling Club.

We know that many of our parents work full-time so it is important that the majority of our co-curricular activities take place during the school day.  By joining these activities in school this may also replace the need for you to find external classes in the evening and weekends.
