OUR SUPER CURRICULUM
Redhill High School is committed to maximising the opportunities available to students as a complement to the academic curriculum. Our lunchtime and after school activities programme will include sports and exercise, music and drama, study time and much more. The School will also be active in competitions and events locally, such as public speaking and business / entrepreneurial competitions.
The School will receive regular visits from the police school programme and students will also have visits from the fire and ambulance services, and medical services, including for vaccinations. The School will offer Careers guidance, work experience programmes and University visits to support students in considering their career options.
Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme
The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme is an excellent asset to all students, encouraging them to undertake worthwhile leisure time activities and personal challenges within the framework of a well-recognised and respected personal achievement.
Adventure Schools Challenge (ASC)
Lower school students will be able to participate in a series of activities leading to the ASC award. This is a stand-alone award but also serves as a good preparation for the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme. Details of the ASC can be found via this link: https://www.asc-scheme.org.uk/asc-scheme
The School places great value on learning outside the classroom, and will provide many interesting excursions and trips for its students. These will include a ski trip and visits to places of educational and cultural interest at home and abroad.
Physical Education and Games
We will value the physical fitness and competency of our students, at whatever level of sports proficiency they have. All students will take part in an afternoon of sports per week, and can attend specific clubs and teams during lunchtime and after school. The PE department will be charged with providing a good mix of sports and activities for students to enjoy, from individual sports and activities through to those played in teams. Anyone unable to take part in any curriculum activity will need to produce a note from parents explaining the reason. Such students will usually observe the lesson without participating, unless there is a compelling reason for them to remain indoors.
Redhill High School values sport and will seek appropriate fixtures and competitions to enter its teams and individuals in.
