Over lunch break there are normally choir and brass band practices, ICT, homework, active sport and art clubs. Extra work or projects can be undertaken during this time in most subject areas.
We run numerous sporting activities and additional coaching is offered by ‘Community’ based clubs and other suitably qualified teaching staff. The college enters teams in the South Tyneside Leagues and all students attending the practices have the opportunity to represent the college in their year group. The teams are also entered into the South Tyneside Schools Tournaments which take place at the end of the season.
A variety of clubs operate, although because 75% of our children travel by school bus, activities after college are more limited. Those meeting after college include drama, art, gymnastics and badminton. Individual sports coaching takes place each week depending on the season.
The college is linked with De La Salle Youth Club. The Club sponsors the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme and our local Mayor’s Awards. All our students are eligible for membership. The club visits Lourdes annually, and also promotes interest in Catholic Societies and Charities.
