We consider the development of pupils outside the narrow academic sphere to be vital for their self-confidence and sociability; thus co-curricular activities are an important feature of integrated life at the school. Designed to enable pupils to learn more of themselves by expanding on existing interests and discovering new ones, they also create the foundation for friendships, pastimes and pursuits which generally last long into the future.
Why co-curricular, and not extra-curricular? Because the activities run alongside the academic curriculum, and are equally important for many children and young people here.
Longridge offers a wide range of co-curricular activities; some take place as part of activity periods which are timetabled during the school day. Others take place at lunchtime or after school. The programme tends to vary from year to year depending on interest and demand.
Sports currently on offer:
Rugby, Hockey, Athletics, Basketball, Soccer, Cricket, Cross Country Running, and Rounders.
Drama, Duke of Edinburgh's Award, Library, Orchestra, Choir, Archery, Science Club and Car Mechanics.
The MFL department offers extra-curricular tuition in both Italian and Latin. Puils also have the option to study Latin up to GCSE.
