Extra and Co-curricular

Learning shouldn’t be confined to a classroom. Venturing outside to explore the natural world is a great way for children to grow in confidence and to learn new life skills. At School, there are lots of opportunities to do just that, including clubs, societies, sports activities and residentials.

Wolverhampton Grammar Junior School offers the largest range of Extra and Co-curricular activities on offer for children of all year groups. From Lego Club, Judo, Chess Club to Gardening – there is something for everyone to try.

Use the calendar to get a taste of how busy our School is or download the list of extra-curricular activities taking place here.  There really is something for everyone.

Children can also choose to stay for a supervised Homework Club or Late Club providing an opportunity for children to talk through any areas of work with a member of staff, complete homework or even just wind down from a busy day.

Take the Residential Challenge

All children in the Junior School have an annual opportunity to have a residential stay at a range of the very best outdoor and historical locations.

Our overnight trips start from as young as Year 3. Residential stays allow children to develop greater independence and confidence. For many, a residential trip may be the first time a child has been away from home and we work closely with parents to ensure this is a positive and fun experience.

Children in Year 3 take a walk on the wild side enjoying a residential stay at Laches Wood in Staffordshire. Children spend two nights in the log cabins and dormitory accommodation.

Year 4 children spend two nights exploring local historical attractions at Blackwell Court, near Bromsgrove as well as enjoying outward bound opportunities on site.

Year 5 spend two nights at the historic Shugborough Estate in Staffordshire and are the only year group to camp outside as part of their residential experience. Children get the opportunity to enjoy canoeing, BMX riding, orienteering and abseiling.

Year 6 students spend a whole week at Towers in Snowdonia National Park, Wales. Activities range of gorge walking to mountain climbing in the snow – a real life changing experience.
