Extracurricular Activities

The wide range of extracurricular activities offered at Edgbaston High School means that there is something for everyone and ensures girls can be busy at lunchtime and after school.

Girls are expected to participate in pursuits which develop their talents, teach them new skills and test their initiative. These activities provide a good opportunity for younger girls to get to know the Sixth Form, many of whom run the clubs and societies or take on mentoring and advisory roles.

Typically, the school has art, science, gym and dance clubs, more formal groupings for debating and public-speaking and the Young Enterprise and Duke of Edinburgh Award Schemes. Girls can also become members of the Technical Crew, where they learn audio-visual, sound and lighting techniques to assist with school productions or they can join the Gardening Club and help tend the School's allotment.

In addition, the school organises a number of residential trips, both abroad and in the UK. These include activity trips for Years 7 and 9, ski trips for Year 8, field courses and cultural visits for GCSE and A Level groups, and regular choir and sports tours.
