Broader Curriculum

The broader curriculum approach adopted by Christ’s Hospital means that the pupils’ curriculum includes academic, pastoral and broader elements.

We want our pupils’ experiences outside the classroom to be varied, rewarding and about discovering and developing new and lifelong interests and talents.

Our diverse curriculum  encourages life-skills and offers an enormous range of Sport, Music, Art, Drama and Outward bound activity as well as activities, clubs and societies to choose from including the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, Young Enterprise, chess, debating, public speaking and so many more listed below

The Combined Cadet Force (CCF) provides unforgettable experiences and allows the cadets to work together as a team and to develop leadership skills.

Our School trips take pupils all over the world. Recently pupils have travelled to New York, sailed the Aegean Sea, as well as visiting France, Germany, Italy ,Spain, and much of Europe. Closer to home our community action programme teaches children the importance of society and citizenship working with the elderly, primary school children and those with special needs.

Our programme educates our pupils for the wider world and also complements and strengthens academic studies and we continuously encourage and help each pupil to identify new interests.
