Our large and varied co-curricular programme develops pupils’ skills, experiences and self-reliance. Pupils are encouraged to pursue their interests, to challenge themselves, and to try out new activities, laying out a foundation for pupils to build and develop a lifelong passion.
Our co-curricular programme varies each term. Our most recent clubs include; STEM club, Minecraft Club, Eco-Club and Quilling Club, to name just a few.
In the Summer Term, we hold Activities Week for pupils in Key Stage 3 (Years 7-9). During this week the usual School timetable is suspended, and pupils are given the opportunity to participate in a wide range of additional activities. These include; Galactic Golf, Team Building, Lazer Zone and tours of Richmond Castle and the National Space Centre. We also have large numbers of pupils taking part in the Duke of Edinburgh Programme, offering pupils the opportunity to take part in a range of activities including volunteering and expedition planning.
Sport is a big part of life at Silcoates. Pupils have access to our onsite Swimming Pool and new state of the art Fitness Suite. We encourage pupils to explore a wide range of sports, including; Athletics, Basketball, Cricket, Football, Gymnastics, Hockey, Netball, Rugby, Swimming and Table Tennis with regular opportunities to represent the School each Saturday in competitive fixtures.
Music also plays a large role in many pupils’ Silcoates experience. Pupils have the opportunity to take individual music lessons, and are encouraged to take part in concerts, school productions and musicals throughout the year.
Day to day, our pupils have access to a wide range of day trips and residentials linked to their studies, this includes; The East Yorkshire Coast, Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Shakespeare’s Globe, Lockerbrook Farm Outdoor Centre, Skiing in Italy, with more long haul destinations including South Africa and Dubai for our Bi Annual sports tours.
