School Clubs

New Year's resolutions are one reason to take up a new activity.  Another good reason at Warlingham School is the range of lunchtime and after school clubs available to our students.   Visit the Clubs section to find out what's going on each day, who to contact and where to go to join in.  Last year over half of all the students attended 43 clubs run and organised by 72 members of staff over the course of the year.  We are working hard to expand participation even further.  The School will never miss an opportunity to explore new club ideas. 

Participation in clubs is a good indicator of academic success.  This is probably because participation is a key factor influencing mental health.  Participation in an extra-curricular activity gives a sense of belonging and social connections.  It raises self-esteem and, in the case of physical activity, can directly improve concentration, sleep patterns, learning capacity and motivation. 

Lunchtime clubs run every day between 1.35-2.10pm.  There are even more after school clubs on offer, which generally run between 3.15-4.30pm, unless otherwise specified. 

As part of our Healthy School Gold Award which we were awarded last year, we are continually exploring ways to develop our offer further.  The Award, which encompasses four broad categories:  Personal, Social, Health and Economic education (PSHE), Mental and Emotional Health, Physical Activity and Nutrition, is part of the Surrey Healthy Schools initiative - a joint project between Education and Health services across the county.  To find out more about the School’s commitment to maintaining a healthy school environment, please visit the Healthy Schools section.
