Lunchtime &
Extra-curricular Clubs and Activities

Preparing our pupils well for their future and next stage is our primary aim. At the end of their time at Gilberdyke, we intend for them to be equipped with skills and knowledge which exceed that of the national curriculum as well-rounded characters who are broad-minded, independent, aspirational and self-assured for life in modern Britain.

To support the development of our young people, additional experiences and opportunities have been carefully considered and coherently sequenced to form our extra-curricular offer. Pupil voice and parental consultation, combined with our school’s core values have been the drivers for an annual calendar of extra-curricular activity and opportunities.
