The Perse School

Beyond the classroom

An all-round education full of clubs, sport, outdoor pursuits, music, art and drama

Choose your adventure

While the School’s academic credentials are well-established, prospective pupils and their parents should also note the exciting extra-curricular opportunities on offer.

Pupils choose from many options in music, drama, dance, sport outdoor pursuits and a vibrant programme of clubs. Whether they are cultivating a particular talent and competing against the best or simply taking part for fun, the activities that children enjoy beyond the classroom are part and parcel of the buzz of daily life at the School.

Through their involvement in extra-curricular activities, pupils become more rounded and gain a sense of perspective about their academic studies. Helping pupils develop ‘breadth and balance’ is one of the Perse Values, and we encourage children to take full advantage of the opportunities available. Quality time spent on the pitch and stage and in the studio helps students develop self-confidence, organisation and resilience and, more often than not, interests for life.

Each year the Prep supports several charities – some chosen by the School, some by the very active Perse Prep Parents’ Association. Supporting these important causes enables us to explore issues that affect people in our community and the wider community, and gives our pupils the opportunity to understand and help others through creative or physical challenges.
