Out of the classroom
Formative experiences are par for the course at Bradford Grammar School, complementing pupils’ academic studies to bring vibrant personalities to the fore.
We actively encourage pupils to partake in co-curricular activities, and set aside ample time for bright young minds to pursue their interests. Arts and crafts, baking, broad minds, chess, languages … the list goes on.
Engaging in such experiences allows our pupils to extend their learning beyond the classroom, and to explore their talents and abilities in a range of different settings.
The Junior School offers a wide and varied range of co-curricular activities which mainly take place during the lunch break. All pupils are encouraged to participate in at least two different activities each week. These may include: netball, hockey, rugby, swimming, cross country, cricket, football, rounders, athletics, table tennis, dance, design technology, computing, lego, craft, art, board games, gardening, choir, orchestra, wind band, string group, rock band, guitar group and samba band.
Nestled on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, and within striking distance of the Lake District, opportunities abound for outdoor visits and residential trips.
Fostering teamwork and life skills, outdoor activities and trips boost pupils’ happiness and confidence by working together with teachers and fellow classmates. By broadening the horizons of our pupils, we aim to give them a thirst for adventure; something that they can explore further within the Senior School.
