How extracurricular activities enrich your child’s curriculum

At Scarisbrick Hall School, we are extremely proud of the value added nature of our co-curricular and extracurricular programmes. We are acutely aware of the importance of extracurricular activities, which is why we strive to provide a holistic and varied learning environment. The following provides a snapshot of the extracurricular activities and their benefits for pupils at Scarisbrick Hall School.

Performing Arts

The Performing Arts are at the heart of Scarisbrick Hall School. Our youngest students, aged four to seven, have the opportunity to explore the joy of music and movement at our Saturday morning Rising Stars programme. Meanwhile, our Saturday Skills classes provide an enriching environment for students aged eight years old and over to further their interest in dance and musical theatre.

Students can also choose to study a musical instrument of their choice with one of our specialist music school tutors. They also have the opportunity to take individual or small group dance tuition towards RAD and IDTA accredited examinations. Whether it be music, dance or drama, all of our extracurricular Performing Arts activities are intended to foster a lifelong love of the arts.
