Extra Curricular Activities
There are a wide range of extra-curricular activities for students to become involved with at Winterhill School. Students are encouraged by their tutors to be actively involved in enrichment activities. These activities provide further opportunities for students to further develop personal qualities such as teamwork, leadership and communication skills, that have a positive impact on attainment and achievement.
There is also a range of trips to support, further develop and supplement the broad enrichment provision at Winterhill School.
Assemblies throughout the academic year also provide further opportunities for enrichment, with recent themes including: Holocaust Memorial Day, E-Safety, British Values, Keeping Safe, and Cultural Diversity. Students in Years 7 and 8 also participate in launch and exit events to support each IMYC theme that they study. Recent examples include, bridge building in Technology, creative news reporting in English and adaptive animals in Science. Students also have the opportunity to have peripatetic music lessons for a range of musical instruments.

Below is the Period 7 activity table, covering the two week timetable. Period 7 is an extra period designed to support Year 11 students in the run up to their exams. Students will be informed by their subject teachers if they need to attend. This is a compulsory period for those students and attendance will be recorded and monitored.
If you are attending any after school activity always remember to let your parents/guardians know what you are doing and what time you will be home or need picking up. Check with the leader of the event to make sure it hasn't been cancelled or the times amended.
