BSG Clubs & Activities Guide 2023/24
At BSG we are fortunate to have teachers, support staff and Sixth Form Students who volunteer their time to provide an extensive range of extra-curricular activities. This summary guide shows you the wide provision offered to our students.
We’re proud of our extra-curricular provision with a huge range of clubs and activities that help build knowledge, develop skills and offer opportunities to our students.
Though most of our club and activities provision is free of charge, a few may charge a fee which is normally used to pay for membership of official organisations or for materials. Please enquire with the staff member responsible to find out about this.
Each year we have an Activities Fair in September to advertise the opportunities and allow all our students to sign up where they wish. To access the Activity and Clubs guide for times and days click below:
