At Gordon's School, there is a wealth of academic enriching activities within the school's co-curricular programme ranging across all subjects and interests. Through this, we also offer a number of identified academic groups the opportunity to participate in local, regional, national and international events where they can challenge themselves further and compete against other schools.
We like to highlight the importance of learning new skills, such as public speaking or designing, and provide our students with the best possible opportunity to develop themselves and enrich their learning outside the classroom.
