Extracurricular Activities

For all ages

Beyond the classroom, every GEMS School offers enriching experiences and extra-curricular activities. All round pupils, all round the year, pupils of all ages can take part in activities to pursue their interests, and have the chance to develop and explore new ones.

From creative and performing arts to subject extensions and sporting activities we offer a range of activities to suit every energetic young mind. Enriching extra-curricular activities build children's aspirations, give them foundation and transferable skills and help them make new friends in the school and have fun.
