Extra Curricular

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.

The last academic year has been an incredibly successful year for school sport at St Wilfrid’s. We are current South Tyneside Champions across a range of age groups in a number of sporting activities and have achieved countywide success across various sports and national success in our under 13 girls handball team and football team.

A variety of clubs operate including drama, art, music and sport. Individual sports coaching takes place each week depending on the season.



Our students have the opportunity to become involved in the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme, the Pope John Paul II Award scheme, World Challenge and the local Mayor’s Award scheme.
