Extra Curricular

Taking part in activities outside the classroom is a great way for students to build positive relationships, develop self-esteem and lead an active and healthy lifestyle.  The commitment of our students to the extra-curricular programme and the high standards they display demonstrate that the school’s mission ‘determined to achieve’ resonates way beyond their academic work.

Formby High School prides itself on the quality and diversity of its extra-curricular programme.  Curriculum areas across the school offer an exciting range of activities at lunchtimes, after school and at weekends to enhance the curriculum provision in creative, stimulating and challenging ways.

Within both the Performing Arts and the PE and Sport curriculum areas, we offer an enviable selection of opportunities, which place us firmly in the highest performing schools in the country in many activities with participation in local and national competitions, festivals and events.  Students across the school are also engaged in Sports Leadership training and the Arts Council Arts Award programme to develop valuable leadership and creative skills.

Activities such as these are enhanced further through opportunities to join the Science Club, Astronomy, Creative Writing Club, Culture Club and the Chess Club. Students are also actively engaged in self-managed charity work, web-based work including the Geography Blog, 6th Form Fanzine and Music Blog.
