Haverstock’s extra-curricular programme
BEFORE SCHOOL Students can arrive at school from 7.30 am and have access to computers, books and newspapers in the library. On one morning a week Arsenal football training is available from 7.30 am.
AT LUNCHTIME We offer a range of leisure and study activities every lunchtime ranging from ICT, chess and film clubs to sports, knitting and quiet study sessions. Many of these are supervised by our trained team of sixth formers
AFTER SCHOOL From 3.15 pm a wide variety of clubs and activities are available. Students can do homework in the library with support from team of sixth formers, until 4.30 pm. The inclusion team provides more personalised homework support after school on two days a week. Sports activities including dance, box fit, basketball, football, cricket, karate, trampolining and skateboarding are offered during the week alongside specific subject clubs such as maths, ICT, science, STEM, business, food technology, media, design and technology and art. A Glee club runs on Saturday afternoons. In the run up to coursework deadlines and exams all subject areas offer a programme of support and revision sessions after school.
HALF TERMS AND HOLIDAYS We provide sports programmes in most holidays as well as hosting other holiday activities run by the Roundhouse, Pro Touch football, The Challenge and Camden Summer University. Summer schools in July and August for the new Year 7 students are sometimes also able to accommodate some younger students from Years 7 and 8. Holiday revision programmes are available in the holidays before exam periods.
LINKS WITH THE ROUNDHOUSE We encourage students to participate in the music, drama, and media courses offered by the Roundhouse after school, at weekends and during the holidays. Free music and circus skills clubs run at the Roundhouse each week for Haverstock students and pupils from local primaries. They provide excellent opportunities for students to develop their skills and gain confidence in a different environment.
C-OOL Students on free school meals are encouraged to register with C-OOL which gives them access to free out of school activities each month. C-OOL advisors come into school each week.
HAVAGO We promote a volunteering programme, with a strong intergenerational focus, throughout the school which enables students from Year 7 onwards to be involved in a wide variety of events and activities both in school and in the local community.
The extra-curricular programme is available at the start of each term via Haverstock News, on the school website and as a booklet from the school office.
