Enriching extra-curricular and sport

Creating Challenging and Exciting Experiences

We're committed to delivering an educational experience that drives personal development and growth, and that means getting out of the classroom and experiencing the world. Life at Webber is interesting and stimulating, and throughout each year our students test their skills in sporting tournaments and inter-school fixtures; experience exhibitions and seminars, visit theatres, museums and galleries as well as taking part in musical performances. Additionally, our young people are able to take part in cultural and language day trips as well as UK and overseas residentials.

Experience Life at Webber through booking a School Tour, followed by a Taster Day.

GIVING OUR YOUNG PEOPLE CHOICE

BUILDING RESILIENCE

Sport is an important part of Life at Webber, in addition to Physical Education lessons we offer a number of sporting activities, from Netball to Football to Gymnastics and Climbing, and much more. Sport is a great way to promote the benefits of a healthy body and mind, as well as teach the importance of teamwork, resilience, grit and persistence. The Webber Independent take part in ISA competitions and sporting fixtures against other independent and local schools, in friendly matches and tournaments. 

Students can choose extra-curricular sporting activities that take place during lunchtime and after school (between 4pm and 5pm), which is a great way for your son or daughter to do more of what they enjoy and establish strong friendships.

EXPRESSION AND CREATIVITY

A great way for our young people to build their character, become more self-aware and uncover hidden talents, is to take part in some of our more creative activities. We offer a diverse mix of extra-curricular clubs from learning to play the Ukulele to Mindfulness and Gardening, and much more. Our more creative pursuits are a great way to build creative problem solving skills, cognitive function and communication. The Webber Independent also holds art exhibitions of students' work, in school and at local art galleries and public spaces, which helps build confidence and presentation skills.

CLUBS

With over 50 extra-curricular clubs and activities for our young people to enjoy, there is something to cater for all talents and individual preferences. The clubs are a great way for students to make friends outside of their Form and Year Group, providing interactions with students across all age groups to build social skills and confidence. So whether your son or daughter fancies flexing their strategic mind with Chess; building their business and enterprise skills at the Entrepreneur's Club, or putting their bilingual skills to the test with Spanish, the choice is theirs. 

GCSE AND A-LEVEL BOOSTER CLASSES

We offer academic booster classes for our GCSE and A-level students at no additional cost. These include the academically demanding subjects of Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Maths, Further Maths, and English Language and Literature. We support our young people during their breaks or after school to ensure they have the best possible chance of success; helping them to feel more confident and in control of their learning, easing exam related stress wherever possible.

CADETS

The Army Cadet Force is a great club that really builds character, focus and respect. This club is available to anyone in Year 8 or above and follows the Army Cadet syllabus. Your son or daughter will be given the opportunity to attend camps and learn skills, such as shooting. The camaraderie of being part of the Cadets is an experience that young people cherish forever.

DUKE OF EDINBURGH'S AWARD

We are a Licensed Organisation (LO) of The Duke of Edinburgh’s (DofE) Award Scheme, with a long history of success. Past and current students have achieved their Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards - a testament to their mental strength and adaptability.

The expedition at each level of the award is always a favourite with students. Our students have walked and camped in New Zealand, Malawi, Ireland, the Isle of Skye, the Peak District, the Brecon Beacons, and Dartmoor.
