Thanks to an enthusiastic and committed staff, we are proud to offer a wide range of clubs and activities.
Nearly every child can find something to his or her taste: and wherever possible, we respond to requests for new or different activities. Over the year there are numerous offsite visits co-ordinated by each department. These include theatre trips; museum visits; field trips; art exhibitions etc. Over 80 visits were organised last year alone!
Some examples of extra-curricular activities offered at Ellowes Hall are:
In addition to after-school clubs and activities, we are also well-known for our fantastic school productions. Well over 100 students of all ages were involved in last year’s production of ‘The Phantom of the Opera'. It lived up to the very high standard set by previous productions. Students have recently produced a series of performances of ‘Miss Saigon’.
