Senior Co-Curricular Opportunities

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 at lunchtimes and after school to suit all tastes. If you enjoy sport, our clubs range from the traditional practices such as hockey, netball, gymnastics, cricket and rugby to girls’ football, trampolining, badminton, 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.

Throw in Japanese for beginners, chicken farming, GCSE Spanish, Ancient Greek, creative cookery, computer programming, Drama Club and street dance and we are sure there is something for everyone!

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. The Drama Club often contributes to Open Day workshops, showcasing individual and group talents to prospective families and the local community. Each year, we stage a School production, alternating between a musical, we recently performed We Will Rock You in 2018.

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 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.
