Activities and Clubs
If a student has an interest, it is possible at Altrincham Girls’ Grammar School for them to pursue that interest. Many clubs are run each year for the students and by the students. The Med Soc and Law Society are very popular clubs but we also have very successful sports teams, a Food Club, and language clubs including the Japanese Club, Drama Club and a Debating Society. This school received an outstanding Ofsted award for ‘learning outside the classroom’ as the opportunities for students and pupils are too numerous to mention here.
The students also play a very important role in helping to run clubs for the younger pupils. The Islam Club and Christian club are two such organisations which serve the whole school.
A very important role for the Year 12 and Year 13 students is the part they play in the lives of the younger members of their school as Peer Mentors. Each week the students meet with a younger form at the Main School. They build up a relationship with the pupils, deliver S.E.A.L. (Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning) and various other PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education) activities and help with any small problems which the pupils may have. This very successful system has been developed to enable the students to become subject mentors and EAL (English as an Additional Language) mentors to the younger pupils.
All these activities are a most successful way of fully engaging the students with the school community and developing their leadership skills at the same time.
