Hobbies

Hobbies


Co-curricular activities support and enrich children’s learning experience at King’s Hall, particularly in the prep when many children are still full of energy at the end of the school day. Visitors to school between 4.45 and 5.30pm on any Tuesday, Thursday or Friday during term time will be greeted by the sights and sounds of children enjoying themselves as they pursue one of a wide range of after school hobbies.

Specialist Talents

Specialist Talents

Some hobbies are for children with particular passions or talents. Specialist Art and Technology hobbies provide a regular time slot in which those children who are particularly gifted can work on scholarship projects. Instrumentalists at Grade One or above have the opportunity to attend Orchestra; others may be invited to join the Chamber Choir who perform at various events and venues.

<h2>Try New Things ...</h2>

Try New Things ...

Many pupils are keen to try new things. Currently, the school offers tae kwon do, yoga and fencing for example, taught by outside experts. Again, the opportunity exists to participate in shows and performances and to work towards grades.

Sport

Sport

Although Sport is very much part of the school curriculum, pupils of all ages and abilities have the opportunity to participate in a more informal setting during hobby time with specialist coaches. Hockey, rugby, netball, athletics, rounders, tennis, football and cricket are all offered during hobby time according to the season. The junior year groups benefit from specialist football coaching.


Engaging and Creative Staff

Engaging and Creative Staff

We are very fortunate at our school to have a number of dedicated staff who have interests beyond their classroom subjects, and who are prepared to give up their time to encourage children’s interests in subjects such as archery, junior and senior baking, crafts, photography, mural painting, bridge and golf.

Hobbies develop and reinforce positive relationships between children and staff outside the normal classroom disciplines, helping to foster the sense of community on which we pride ourselves at King’s Hall.

<h2>Saturday Morning Activities</h2>

Saturday Morning Activities

These are put on for all boarders and also day pupils from Year 6 to 8. The day pupils can opt not to take part in the morning programme and if included they can still be excused for other commitments. In this way, we hope that everyone is happy. Each term there is a number of activities that the children can opt to take.
