Extra - Curricular

At Duncombe we believe learning doesn’t have to just happen in the classroom

Horse-riding, chess, ballet, self-defence and photography are just some of the many opportunities for children to enjoy school beyond the curriculum.

A Duncombe education goes far beyond the curriculum. The school inspectors described our extra-curricular activities as “exceptional” and said they “made an important contribution to the overall development of pupils”.

We believe that by encouraging children to explore a wide variety of opportunities it will equip them with the skills, confidence and aspirations to broaden their horizons and develop their independence.

Typical trips for the younger children include a visit to the local farm or a local train journey, and as children progress through the school they have opportunities to visit historic sites, galleries and museums, enjoy theatre and concert outings and much more.

Residential visits are introduced from Year 3 to foster independence as well as to enhance the curriculum. Our eight-year-olds visit Tolmers Scout Camp for two days of team building activities. Our Year 4s spend three days in York for their history curriculum, Year 5s take part in a five-day outdoor adventure residential in Devon. Finally, in Year 6, pupils spend seven days in Normandy to experience the French life and culture and practise their language skills.
