Extra Curricular Activities

“You may never know what results come of your actions, but if you do nothing, there will be no results.” – Mahatma Gandhi

With over 150 weekly activities running before, during and after school, there really is a provision for all interests and talents. Our outstanding facilities and inspiring staff, nurture students to discover their passion and reach their potential, regardless of ability or aspiration. Our aim is to provide the spark that lights the flame in each student and help keep it burning.

All pupils are encouraged to participate widely across academic, art, performance, language, design and sporting activities, all of which are focused around bespoke learning journeys and outcomes.

In addition to the subject-specific skills, much sought-after ‘soft skills’ of leadership, collaboration, resilience and perseverance that help prepare students for life beyond Uptown International School, are central to our program.

The Enrichment program runs in three distinct terms, enabling students to attend a greater variety of activities over the course of the year:

Term 1: – September – December
Term 2: – January – March
Term 3: – April – July

The Enrichment Programme is offered by Uptown International School teachers from 2:30pm – 3:30pm for Primary students and 3.00pm – 4.00pm for Secondary students, daily, every term.
