Here at Amity, we are committed to providing outstanding all-around education and exciting experience beyond the classroom. Both are essential aspects of what we offer.
We believe that co-curricular activities broaden horizons and encourage key competencies such as critical thinking, creativity, communication, and collaboration.
We seek to challenge our pupils and provide them with the skills, confidence and emotional intelligence that are now considered essential 21st Century competencies.
Therefore, we do not consider these afterschool and lunchtime activities as ‘extras’. On the contrary, we expect and encourage all students, from Nursery to Sixth Form, to participate to a greater or lesser degree. For this reason, we call them co-curricular activities, not extra-curricular.
We firmly believe that every child has a great number of talents and passions yet to be discovered. The Amity daily experience is designed to unearth these talents and to develop them to the fullest over time. Using the school’s outstanding campus facilities, involvement in the programmes on offer not only will enable our pupils to be high achievers in their chosen activities, but they are great fun too.
