Expanding our range of enrichment opportunities, an Archaeology Society has been added to the list of co-curricular options for the 2023-24 academic year.
There are more than 150 activities, clubs and societies on offer each week for pupils and other new additions this year include Drama Tech Club, Creative Journaling, Ethics Cup and Rock Band.
The Archaeology Society provides an in-depth exploration of the field of archaeology, offering students a comprehensive understanding of its methods, theories and contributions to the study of human history and culture. Through a combination of lectures, discussions and hands-on activities, students learn about the excavation process, artefact analysis, cultural interpretation and the role of archaeology in shaping our understanding of the past.
The Ethics Cup competition is an entirely different way to debate and centres on collaborative conversation and building consensus with opponents. A group of up to five students engage with prepared ethical dilemmas where they discuss responses to a set of questions. The regional competition is at King’s College London and Worth, who have been national champions previously, hope to return to St Andrews University this academic year to compete for the national title once more. The group is limited to 15 students.
Drama Tech Club teaches the technical side of theatre, including sound and lighting, while Creative Journaling encourages pupils to discover a therapeutic outlet for thoughts and emotions, as well as improving writing skills.
