Kenilworth School provides education for its students that goes well beyond the confines of the classroom. There is a variety of opportunities for our young people to engage in a wide range of activities during their lunchtimes and after school.
During a typical week, there are a wide number of activities in which our students are able to participate. These range from a variety of sporting clubs, debate boxing, book clubs, interact (young Rotary club), Space, Rocket and Robotics club to name but a few. There really is something for everyone at Kenilworth and we strongly recommend that all students engage in at least one activity – even if it is trying something for the first time in their life!
Each year a number of trips and visits are arranged. In the past Kenilworth students have visited: France, Austria, the USA, Iceland and Canada. There are also many visits within the UK; including Geography GCSE field trips, Religious Studies trips to local churches and mosques, Drama and English trips to see performances in the West End as well as more local shows. We also have opportunities for our students to visit universities to experience master classes as well as getting a taste of university life. All of our Year 8 students attend a residential week at Manor Adventure in Shropshire and experience a wide range of outdoor activities. Some of our older students also take part in Mountain Walks in Wales with our staff.
We also encourage our students to involve themselves in the local community. Many of our students raise money for local causes and charities. We regularly host a summer Strawberry Tea for the residents of a local old people’s home, as well as some of our students visiting the residents to play games with them and read them stories.
In Year 10 students are able to participate in the Duke of Edinburgh Award which is extremely popular at Bronze, Silver and Gold level. As part of this award, many of these student’s volunteer in charity shops, local Beavers and Rainbow groups as well as a number of residential homes in and around Kenilworth.
