Life at Everest is about much more than lessons. There is a comprehensive enrichment programme that caters for all interests and skills. Our aim is to see every young person involve themselves in at least one activity beyond their curriculum.
Highlights of the enrichment programme include the showcases run by the Performing Arts department and a fully comprehensive and inclusive programme of sporting activities run by the PE department.
In addition to this we have a thriving house system. Students represent four mountaineers that have conquered Mount Everest and have the opportunity to plan, run and participate in inter house competitions. House competitions are run on a weekly basis and open to all. At the end of the academic year students participate in a whole school sports day which covers a variety of events including the traditional athletics.
The Duke of Edinburgh Award is also a very popular activity on offer for KS4 students. Students commit for 3 or 6 months to learning a new skill, playing sport and completing charity work as well as completing an independent walking expedition. This is an excellent addition to their school programme.
