Extracurricular Activities

Crompton House offers a wide variety of extracurricular activities to enhance students’ skills and widen their horizons.

We are one of the biggest centres for the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme in the North West with a very high completion rate at Gold level.

There are a multitude of curricular and extracurricular trips ranging from local theatre visits and crown court, to trips abroad including Iceland, Morocco, Cern, Sweden and New York.

There are a wide range of activities for students to get involved in. From lunchtime clubs to full day events and major music, drama and sporting activities, there is never a dull moment in the Crompton House Sixth Form Experience.

Current opportunities include: Sixth Form football, rugby and netball teams, an annual school musical, Upper School Shakespeare, the Dance Show, Senior Choir, Senior Wind Ensemble, Senior Orchestra and many more clubs and events, with others organised within subjects.

Sixth Form students may take on leadership roles either in school or in their community. School leadership opportunities include becoming part of the Student Management Team or a Subject Prefect, organising charity events, working with younger pupils in sport (running or training a group), music (conducting or leading a music group), drama (directing or back-stage), dance (choreography in the Dance Show or school production) and mentoring younger pupils, both in terms of their subjects and also helping them socially. Out of school, Sixth Form students can use their time to help run organisations such as scouts or guides, church or sports groups and can also get involved in work experience or a part time job, in order to further enhance their skill set.
