Clubs, Trips & Visits

Throughout the school journey there are visits offered to support the curriculum, both visitors coming into school and local trips. We also offer some amazing extra-curricular trips including opportunities to go abroad and be immersed in a foreign language experience, we work with the Outward Bound Trust and offer the Duke of Edinburgh Award.

After School Clubs
Flixton Girls School offers a variety of extra-curricular sports and arts clubs at the end of the school day.
Trips
Our offer for years 7-11 will be published here.
Outward Bound
Opportunity to participate in years 7, 8 and 10. Adventure in the outdoors can be an extraordinarily powerful teacher. We foster a positive culture and can do attitude toward outdoor education. This is an area where everyone can not only have success and achieve but can allow themselves to be challenged. It will also help to build strength and resilience that will enable our students to be successful in future life.

All the opportunities we offer in outdoor education can help students with their personal development.

Duke of Edinburgh Award
The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is a national scheme for young people between the ages of 14 and 25. The Award has different levels, each made up of four sections: service, physical recreation, skill and expedition; and at the highest level participants also have to complete a residential project.

The Scheme demands considerable commitment and determination but many universities and employers recognise the value of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, as it shows the holder has self-discipline, enterprise and perseverance. We offer the Bronze and Silver awards in lower school. Students are invited to sessions to cover the expedition section of the award; pupils then choose other activities to complete in their own time for the skill and physical recreation sections.

All groups go on practice expeditions during the year and assessed expeditions take place at the end of Summer Term in early July. Silver expeditions involve walking for three days, while the Gold groups walk for four days to meet the requirements of the award; at both levels, participants carry all of their kit and are totally self-sufficient.
