Extra Curricular

Opportunities for learning beyond the classroom are extensive.

We have excellent facilities for art, drama, music and sporting clubs with an active Duke of Edinburgh Group. We offer both entitlement and enrichment activities to all our pupils including several residential trips each year.

Subject areas also organise visits to support and extend learning including trips to New York, the annual pilgrimage to Lourdes, Sixth Form work experience visiting Udayan in India and various different sporting trips to European destinations.

St Joan’s have achieved sporting excellence at local and county level.

Pupils regularly compete in many different sports including rugby, football, netball, athletics, cricket and gymnastics.

Our music facilities include state-of-the-art recording studios, practice rooms in a dedicated music building.

Our Drama Studio has been used to showcase the theatrical talents of our pupils who have performed in a wide variety of productions, including the National annual Shakespeare festival, musicals and our famous drama and music departments' summer season festivals and collaborations.
