What many schools term ‘extra-curricular’ activities, for us at New Hall forms the ‘Co-Curriculum’, an intrinsic and valued part of what we do educationally. The co-curricular programme at New Hall is designed to provide the breadth to the education that enables us to develop the well-balanced individuals.
The impact that an active involvement in the co-curricular life of the school can have on academic attainment should not be underestimated. Many of the skills developed through co-curricular activities are directly transferable to the academic arena. These include problem-solving, working as a team and performing under pressure in front of an audience. The necessary self-discipline and commitment to practice that are fundamental to success in these areas are also mirrored in the classroom.
