Extra curricular & clubs

There is a huge range of clubs and extracurricular activities on offer at Chessington. Students are encouraged to take a full part in the life of the school. We have a club to suit everyone’s needs and aspirations. Most curricular areas offer subject based clubs for students who have a particular interest. Some of the favourites are the App Club, Dissection Club and Film Club among many others. There is a wide range of sports clubs such as football, netball, basketball and rugby with the opportunity to take part in competitions throughout the academic year, particularly in our house teams which are Phoenix, Pegasus, Dragon and Griffin House. The House system adds more healthy competition as well as motivation and offers competitions such as Spelling Bees, the Great Chessington Bake Off and more.

We regard competitive sport as an important life opportunity for teenagers and support this fully. We also encourage students to take the bronze and silver level Duke of Edinburgh Award from Year 9. We believe that getting into the countryside and striving against adversity helps our personal development.  There are Art and Drama clubs, choir and orchestra during lunchtimes and after school. In addition to the Christmas Concert, our annual LAFTA award evening is a fantastic showcase of talent. Our performance of The Little Shop of Horrors included students from all year groups and was so popular that it ran for three nights.
