King’s Hall School and King’s College offer a vast and varied array of extra-curricular activities, unparalleled for a school of its size, from sport and drama to music and outdoor pursuits, from CCF and dance to cookery and debating.
Outdoor activities are well catered for within the umbrella of the Combined Cadet Force (CCF), and alongside that are Forest School, Pyrland Pioneers, Ten Tors and the Duke of Edinburgh Bronze and Gold award schemes. Sailing, archery and hill walking are also on offer. Kayaking takes place in the King's College pool in winter and in the sea or local rivers in the warmer weather. The college has its own climbing wall and groups also go climbing in Devon. At King's College, the CCF runs a Navy, Army and Marines section, and the Royal Marines section recently won the Sir Steuart Pringle trophy.
On a more cerebral note, King's Hall has reading groups, chess clubs and bridge clubs as well as craft. King's College has inter-house debating as well as a school debating and public speaking team. For budding entrepreneurs, the King’s Business Group runs a new enterprise every year. Many of the academic departments also run their own clubs outside the classroom curriculum.
