CLUBS AND TRAVEL
As you will understand, school is not simply a place that focuses exclusively on all things academic. Indeed, there are social and related elements that are fundamental to the school experience, for these augment the academic elements while also providing the student with valuable opportunities to discover and to explore other diverse interests.
At CA London, we offer a range of clubs and activities that are designed to enable students to broaden their interests and to hone specific skills and talents. These change termly and have included Art, Drama, Media, Film, Code Breaking, Book, ICT, Games and Gardening Clubs. We are, moreover, always on the lookout for additional clubs and activities, and our students are encouraged to make suggestions directly to Mentors and teachers, and also through their own Student Council.
Our students also have the opportunity to pursue interests farther afield. Throughout the school year, we use our proximity to London to visit many key attractions, including the Science Museum, the Museum of Natural History, the Cabinet War Rooms, the National Gallery of Art, the Globe Theatre and many others.
In addition, our younger students journey each year to an adventure camp for a week.
CA London is not only a community in and of itself; it is also part of the greater London community. Much of the spirit of the school—its ethos—asks students to be particularly sensitive and compassionate towards other people.
In this regard, all our students participate in various community service projects. These frequently involve fund-raising on behalf of a local charity, sponsoring charitable initiatives and donating gifts to needy children at holiday times. It is important to note that as a school, we frequently look to our students to take the initiative in the search for charitable pursuits—and, of course, to lead the all-school effort to translate plans into action.
We do hope that your introduction to Centre Academy London has been informative. Should you have any questions, do, please, feel free to call the Head of School.
