Hobbies at King's Hall
Here at King’s Hall, children receive the best education to help them succeed in academic life and to prepare them for senior school. Whilst this is, of course, important, we also believe that a child’s learning goes beyond the classroom and that children benefit from the development of their own specific interests and skills. To supplement such growth, we offer and a wide range of co-curricular activities led by our enthusiastic staff. Hobbies are offered both after school and on Saturday mornings. Children have the opportunity to make the most of our own fantastic facilities, as well as those at King’s College, and are also able to enjoy the beautiful surrounding countryside.
Something for everyone
We offer a vast and varied array of sport and activities. Importantly, great emphasis is put on ensuring that our pupils enjoy a healthy outdoor life to balance with the academic and creative areas of the school curriculum.
Recent hobbies include: Abseiling, choir, cookery, craft club, drama, dry-slope skiing, forensic science club, girls' football, hill walking, mountain biking, sports clinics, squash, and tennis. The aim of our activities is to allow each and every pupil to find their niche, widen their interest and to promote self-confidence and self-belief.
“Our daughter has had a love of the stage since she was an infant and performing arts have quickly become her passion. We were amazed when she was lucky enough to be awarded the 11+ performing arts scholarship at King's Hall. King's has amazing arts facilities that are second to none and she is already enjoying lots of extra curricular performing opportunities, including senior choir, drama club and speech and drama lessons. We cannot praise King's highly enough and we are thrilled that she is now attending a school that has the same levels of passion for a subject she loves.”
Beyond the classroom
At King’s Hall, our vision is to enable every young person to experience the world beyond the classroom as an essential part of their learning and personal development. Through learning opportunities outside the classroom, we aim to raise achievement and create aspirations through an organised, powerful approach to learning. This is not only about what we learn but importantly how and where we learn and what development takes place. We want the children in our care to be healthy, stay safe, enjoy and achieve, make a positive contribution to a group and to develop aspirations that will lead to achieving future well-being.
