Beyond the Classroom

Townsend Church of England School is a dynamic and vibrant community and there are many exciting and challenging activities which complement students’ study courses, making their lives more fulfilling and more fun.

There are numerous clubs and activities which take place at lunchtimes or after school. These range from all the major sporting clubs to music, drama, chess, art, homework, science, sign language and computer clubs.

Field trips, visits to exhibitions, lectures and theatres, weekend or day visits enhance courses studied. There are guest speakers who visit the school and workshops led by visiting specialists. We currently organise foreign visits to France and Germany for language work and a skiing trip takes place annually.

The school has strong links with the local community and students are sometimes involved in local projects, voluntary service, and in raising considerable funds for local and national charities.
