Co-Curricular Programme

Developing Life Skills to compliment Academic Endeavour

Inspired by the eight main skills highlighted nationally as useful for university or apprenticeship courses and ultimately future careers, our Co-Curricular programme is a rich and diverse activity programme that provides students with opportunities to develop each and every one of them. With the opportunity to stretch and challenge themselves against ‘Intermediate’, ‘Advanced’ and ‘Mastery’ skill level criteria, using their ‘CoCu passports’, students are able to collect evidence of their progress and achievements in any of the following eight skill areas:

  • Listening: Supporting, encouraging and developing others to achieve a shared goal
  • Speaking: The oral transmission of information or ideas
  • Problem Solving: The ability to find a solution to a situation or challenge
  • Creativity: The use of imagination and the generation of new ideas
  • Staying Positive: The ability to use tactics and strategies to overcome setbacks and achieve goals
  • Aiming High: The ability to set clear, tangible goals and devise a robust route to achieving them
  • Leadership: Supporting, encouraging and developing others to achieve a shared goal
  • Teamwork: Working cooperatively with others towards achieving a shared goal

We place students at the heart of their own learning, tailoring study paths to develop knowledge, skills and experiences that play to students’ strengths, interests and learning styles.  We want to explore potential talent and new interests so students can try new things as well as becoming masters at the skills they love. Our aim is to make students independent learners, confident in their skills and abilities and not afraid to try new things.

Our broad and diverse co-curricular programme is designed to enrich the student experience, developing skills-based learning across these eight areas. We have 5 periods of Co-Cu activities each week offering a huge range of activities from Duke of Edinburgh to Cookery Courses with our head chef; the Mysteries of History to Warhammer, Model United Nations to Filmmaking … to name only a few.  See our CoCu booklet below to find out more …

Membership of the destinations platform Unifrog, the world’s biggest database of Post 16 and Post 18 learning opportunities, also ensures that students have the most up to date information on the various study pathways and destinations open to today’s school leaver, so they are not only able to make informed decisions about their future after Claremont, but also stay on track with their applications.

When the time comes for our students to start the next stage of their learning journey, we want to ensure they not only know what their key skills are, but also how to link them to their own learning experiences.  By being able to confidently tell their own story, students are able to inspire and influence the people around them.
