At the High School of Dundee, learning does not start and finish at the classroom door.

The Co-curriculum

The co-curriculum is woven into the daily life of the School, at every age and stage, providing a structured holistic learning environment that is enormously beneficial to academic studies.

The potential of our pupils can lie in any sphere. The co-curriculum provides us with an opportunity to discover that potential, nurture it, and support the development of a range of associated skills and experiences which will stand our pupils in good stead throughout their lives.

Pupils in the Junior and Senior Years have a range of lunch time and after school activities and clubs to choose from. Opportunities range from the chance to be a part of the Sinfonia band, or perform with a choir, to Warhammer, gardening, curling, climbing, origami, Philosophy and Equality and Empowerment clubs.

Pupils can also represent the School in various sports, taking part in competitive fixtures in hockey, rugby, netball, tennis, football and more, or they can pursue sports they enjoy or haven’t tried before as part of the sporting co-curricular activities programme.

Many pupils also attend specialist instrumental music tuition during the school day and various musical concerts and drama performances are held throughout the year, providing the ideal outlet for our youngsters’ creative urges.

Pupils are always encouraged to think of others less fortunate than themselves, and have the opportunity to participate in various fund-raising and charitable initiatives during the course of the year.

Trips, designed to keep the learning process fresh, exciting and relevant, and offering the chance to explore at first hand concepts and subjects which have been introduced in the classroom, are an engaging part of the learning process.
