Beyond the classroom

PASCAL students of all ages enjoy enriching experiences across a comprehensive range of interests. Students develop their leadership skills, talents, and interests beyond academics, they step out of their comfort zones, all of which strengthen their university applications. 

PASCAL’s House system is linked to our extracurricular offer and is a great way for students to collaborate and work towards common goals with peers. We also participate in inter-school events, where students compete with their cohort against other PASCAL schools. 

Kindergarten & Primary School

We regularly refresh our extracurricular programmes to provide variety and encourage enthusiastic participation. The type of activities your child will be able to choose include:

  • Volunteering for an established charity
  • Fundraising or sports events
  • Festive plays and talent shows
  • STEAM-based fun and learning activities 
  • Excursions
  • International events such as World Poetry Day

Students in Years 5 and 6 enjoy local and foreign trips. Experiencing being away from home helps to build resilience, self-confidence, and socio-emotional skills.

Secondary School (Day & Boarding)

Students select three choices from 30 clubs, as per the dates and guidelines detailed in our Clubs Manual. Participation is mandatory and shown in the Apolytirion. Evidence of a range of experiences helps university applications.

Some examples of Clubs that students may choose from include:

  • Fashion  
  • Charity and fundraising
  • European Youth Parliament
  • Sports (eg. swimming, football, scuba diving)
  • Photography
  • Drama
  • Engineering
  • Robotics
  • Martial Arts
  • Astronomy

There is also the option of doing the International Award for Young People (The Duke of Edinburgh Award), a recognised voluntary, non-competitive programme of physical, cultural and educational activities. The Award is designed to support young people's personal and social development through exciting, constructive, challenging, and enjoyable activities in their free time. The Award can offer an added boost to students’ university applications.
