Extra Curricular

Pupils are given the opportunity to take part in a wide range of extra and co-curricular activities to extend their learning, to develop new skills and to create memories that last a lifetime.

At Hunterhouse we are fully committed to the personal development of all of our pupils – socially, morally, physically, creatively and artistically.  In developing these attributes the vibrant extra-curricular programme is an important and continually evolving part of school life. The following are some of the activities available:

  • Debating
  • Drama and school productions
  • Speech and drama
  • Junior and Senior Choirs
  • School Orchestra
  • Ukulele Group
  • Coding Club
  • Art and Crafts
  • Science Club
  • Scripture Union
  • A wide range of sporting activities including hockey, netball, tennis, badminton, soccer, athletics, cross-country, equestrianism and fencing

We also seek to extend still further pupils’ learning through our co-curricular programme.  Girls in all year groups will have a range of different speakers, workshops and day trips to further enrich the curriculum and add greater relevance to their studies.  In recent months History classes have visited the Titanic Centre, our geographers carried out coursework on the north coast, and the Colin Glen River and Sixth Formers have visited Dublin to carry out work related to several subject areas.  Our GCSE Business Studies students always look forward to the annual visit to the Tayto factory!

Alongside these a number of extended trips are on offer to provide additional opportunities for pupils to broaden their experiences, understand different cultures and mature as young people.  Recent trips have included:

  • The annual Year Eight Cultra Residential
  • Ski Trip to Folgaria, Italy
  • Geography trip to Sorrento, Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius
  • Language exchanges to Paderbörn, Germany and Seville, Spain
  • Art Trip to Amsterdam
  • Business Studies trip to Disneyland, Paris
  • Home Economics trip to London
