Extra-curricular and School Clubs

There are plenty of opportunities at Glyn to join clubs and to get involved in extra-curricular activities. The full list is published at the start of each year, so watch out in September for the activities and clubs which you can join.  

If you are musical, there is a different club on each lunchtime in the Music Department. The Pop Choir, Ukulele Band and Concert Band are just three examples. Students who join these clubs will then also get to perform in a variety of concerts, such as the Spring Concert, Creative Arts Evening and the Christmas Carol Concert. There is also an opportunity to apply to be part of the Year 7 Band initiative which enables you to learn a musical instrument in small  groups for a reduced cost and to be part of a wind band which will also perform at several events.

If you enjoy performing, there are opportunities to get involved with Drama and Theatre at Glyn and our Sixth Formers lead and run our Drama Club; which runs every other Wednesday from 3.10pm  – 4.00pm. In addition to this every year we have a whole school production.  This year our production was Guys and Dolls,  last year it was Little Shop of Horrors and in March 2016 our whole school production was Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.  Watch this space to find out what opportunities will be available in 2018-2019.

Other clubs include the, IT – Lego Club, Reading Club, Drama Club and the Debating Club to name just a few.

The clubs run before school, at lunchtime and after-school….there is literally something for everyone.

Whichever club you belong to, these are a great way to make new friends and to take part in something fun.

School Teams

Every Saturday morning Glyn School fields many sports teams. The range of sporting activities which you can take part in at Glyn School is truly impressive. In recent terms we have sent our students to represent the school in track and field events, cricket, rugby, tennis, badminton, table tennis, basketball, swimming and of course, in football.

Many year groups have more than one team out representing the school on a Saturday, so you have a great chance to play for the school. Watch out for information on the football and rugby trials.  As soon as we have it, you will find it here.

All sporting teams have regular practices after school and these can be found on the Extra Curricular Timetable which is published at the start of each year.
