Extra Curricular Opportunities
At Endon we believe in offering our pupils a wide range of opportunities to experience new activities and to develop all their skills and talents.
We enjoy a thriving musical tradition and up to 100 pupils receive individual or small group lessons from visiting specialist teachers in the playing of string, woodwind and brass instruments. The highlights in the school’s musical year are the concerts given by orchestra, choir, groups of instrumentalists and soloists covering a wide range of musical styles at Presentations Night, Christmas, Easter and in the Summer Term. Our stage productions enable large numbers of pupils to develop and display their talents as actors, singers, dancers or musicians. The exceptionally high standards reached have built up a well-respected reputation throughout the area. Several pupils have progressed to playing roles with the New Victoria Theatre at Newcastle. Every year the orchestra enjoys a week’s “residential” to learn new music, work with a professional conductor and have lots of fun!
In sport Endon enjoys a good reputation both for the scope of activities offered and for the high standards achieved. Coaching and practices take place at lunch time and after school. A wide range of summer, winter and indoor sports are followed competitively in the schools’ league. Pupils have outstanding records in competition and regularly gain representative honours at area, county and national levels.
Every day pupils are able to make full use of the LRC and computer facilities at lunch time and after school when they can extend their classroom studies or develop their own interests.
Modern Foreign Languages
The Modern Foreign Languages Department has developed a range of trips abroad to cater for pupils’ needs, interests and purses! There is an annual 4–day trip to Paris each summer for Year 8. Year 10 and year 11 students can take part in visits to Berlin and the Black Forest.
Each year we offer a wide range of residential and travel opportunities where pupils can broaden their experience, enjoy living as part of a larger community and gain independence and self-reliance. The History and Modern Languages Departments offer a joint residential to Berlin, the History and RE Departments offer a joint residential to Krakow and Auschwitz. The Geography Department offers a residential to Iceland.
When school is out, get in the Zone!
Lifelong learning and a love of learning is something we aspire to achieve for our young people and we offer a comprehensive programme of curriculum and non-curriculum based clubs and activities to blur the boundary between home and school and to allow youngsters to see how we look on all aspects of learning as important.
The “Endzone” provides wonderful opportunities for Staff and Pupils to work together on a whole host of activities, instilling a love of learning, building relationships and giving further opportunities of personal development and leadership to our young people
