All children are encouraged to participate in clubs and activities that take place after school, which help to stimulate and broaden their experiences beyond the normal curriculum.
Some activities are seasonal and are taken by staff and outside agencies but they include chess, tennis, ballet, art and design, football, drama, judo, cookery, skiing, rowing, adventure club, indoor games, golf and IT skills, amongst others.
Pupils opt for the clubs they would like to join at the end of each term and are allocated their first choice, plus one other if they are keen to do so.
Gayhurst also supports pupils in pursuing particular talents. As a result they have represented Great Britain recently in skiing and ice skating, performed on the West End stage, had numerous successes in Equestrian pursuits and been members of national music ensembles. They exhibit artwork in senior school competitions, compete in French speaking as well as a Rotary Cub sponsored Youth Speaking competition, to name but a few.
We also have excellent links with the surrounding community, including Wasps RFC, Wycombe Wanderers FC, Bull Lane tennis club and the Ondine School of Ballet. The School has built an excellent reputation through charitable fund-raising as well as a programme of visits and concerts to nearby old people’s homes and places of worship. Gayhurst also has a link with an Ethiopian school or which funds are raised annually.
Trips and Visits
Trips both curricular and extra-curricular occur regularly throughout the year. Children from Year 4 upwards can join in residential trips both here and abroad.
From camping to culture, the trips offered by the School provide the girls and boys with a wide range of experiences and a host of happy memories.
