Senior Co-Curricular

Here at Teesside High we firmly believe that there is more to our student experience than their academic profile and achievements. We believe that our students need to be articulate and well-rounded individuals who can work well with others and communicate effectively.

Our extensive co-curricular programme means that there is always something on offer to suit all tastes. We have a designated timetable slot for co-curricular opportunities, 3.20pm-4.00pm, providing time for our students to engage with specialist staff and coaches to develop their interests and skills.

Our programme is divided into three sections, Skill, Physical and Volunteering. Each term, there are dozens of activities to choose from in each category. Examples include:

  • Running Club, Badminton, Bootcamp Fitness, Laser Run Pistol Shooting, Volleyball, Ice Skating;
  • Drama Club, Find Your Voice (public speaking), Biology Club, Classical Music, Puzzles, Astronomy for Beginners;
  • Litter Picking, Seniors to Seniors (visiting elderly residents), Chicken Club, and lots more.

If you enjoy sport, our clubs range from the traditional practices such as hockey, netball, gymnastics, cricket and rugby to girls’ football, trampolining, table tennis and golf. If you have more of an artistic nature, perhaps our music ensembles have something to offer; Orchestra, Swing Band, Choir, or even Rock Band, or you may enjoy our European Film Club. We also offer additional language tuition through clubs in Japanese, Italian, Spanish and Ancient Greek.

We encourage all our pupils to try new experiences and welcome suggestions as to what else you would like to see going on in school.

Drama and Performance

School runs a thriving Drama Club where students from all year groups work together on a range of activities. Drama Club students often contribute to Open Day workshops, showcasing individual and group talents to prospective families and the local community. Each year, we stage a school production; we recently performed We Will Rock You and A Night at the Musicals

Speech and Drama lessons are also available so that students have the opportunity to undertake examinations in the performance of verse, prose and drama for personal achievement.

Music

Music plays an important part in the life of many of our students. The subject is taught within the timetabled day during which students experience a broad range of composing and performing activities on a wide range of instruments, whilst developing their listening and appraising skills.

Co-curricular Music is seen as vital in further developing our talented youngsters and in addition to our Orchestra and Choirs, there is also a range of groups and ensembles including Rock Band, Soul Band and Jazz Ensemble.

Outdoor Education

Improving quality of life through better health, fitness and movement skills is the most basic of expectations from our Outdoor Education programme, but it runs so much deeper. Our students have opportunities to be involved in outdoor residentials, team building in our own Woodland School, the Duke of Edinburgh award programme, and outward bounds weekends, to name but a few.

Building trust in their peers and confidence in themselves through collaboration in activities which promote physical and mental challenge in a range of environments, these activities demand perseverance and determination, problem solving and decision making as well as independence and self reliance, all of which builds resilience through both day-long and residential experiences.

Sport

Teesside High School has an excellent tradition and reputation in competitive sport. Our co-curricular sports programme is at the heart of our pupil community.

We encourage pupils of all abilities to be involved and committed to #teamTHS.  Our most able athletes excel and are stretched through School, District, County and National representation but we remain committed to ensuring all pupils, whatever their ability, enjoy and participate in sport outside of lessons.

We enjoy excellent facilities in fabulous surroundings, inspiring our pupils to perform at their very best.
