Extra-Curricular

Wherever your interests lie – art, politics, music, drama or sport – they’ll find expression at Notting Hill.  There are dozens of clubs and societies.

Some clubs are subject based, others develop a skill or interest, for example you can join the keen environmentalists, explore the past with the historians or discuss books with the Literary Club. 

For musicians there are three orchestras, chamber groups and ensembles, several choirs and plenty of formal and informal concerts and tours.  If debating or public speaking is your thing, you can take part in English Speaking Union and Oxford Union competitions with the Debating Club or discuss world issues at Model United Nations Conferences.  The Politics Club and Amnesty International Group also provide opportunities to develop and express your ideas and opinions. 

I’ve been doing zumba, badminton, choir and working on the school play as well as spending time with friends in the common room

There are hockey, netball, rounders, tennis, cross country, water polo and swimming teams, and the gymnastics and dance clubs take part in displays both with local schools and other GDST schools from around the country. 

 Many sixthformers help run the clubs they join, sharing their enthusiasm and interest with younger girls and making an important contribution to the life of the school.  If no club exists to meet your interests you’ll be encouraged, and helped, to start one.
