Learning Outside the Classroom

At Tapton we promote academic enrichment through a range of clubs and activities, inspiring our students to foster a lifelong love of learning and the independence and flexibility to embark upon a bright future. 

A wide range of hobbies and interests are catered for, from sport and music practice, to Debating and STEM clubs. 

Students are also encouraged to get involved in leadership activities across all Key Stages. Year and Student Councils, the Prefect System and the Duke of Edinburgh Award Programme are just some of the activities on offer that enable students to acquire, develop and demonstrate their leadership skills.
