Clubs, Activities and Valor Award

At The Gregg School we consider learning beyond the classroom a key part of secondary education and personal development for young people.

We offer a plethora of co-curricular opportunities for our students to enjoy and experience. These take place during lunchtimes and after school. Mainly run by our staff but may also be student led, or at external venues e.g. bouldering, kayaking, golf, dry slope skiing and horse riding. The vast majority of our clubs are free of charge, with costs generally only being incurred for external venues and activities.

Impactful Enrichment Programme “Pupils enjoy co-curricular activities and have a variety of opportunities from which to choose. The co-curricular programme utilises the school environment and contributes to their wellbeing. The impact of leaders’ decisions to provide clubs and activities to reflect pupils’ needs and interests and adapt the school day more than doubled pupil attendance.” - ISI Report 2024

Activities vary from term to term and a new co-curricular schedule is published at the start of each term.

Take a look at life outside the classroom:

KS4 Revision Sessions

Supervised study sessions, for our GCSE students, are also held on all school days from 4.00pm until 5.00pm. Please see Firefly to view the timetable Key Stage 4 Revision Sessions.

Late Buses

Late buses operate on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings, on slightly reduced routes, enabling students staying for clubs and activities to travel home on school transport.

The Gregg School Valor

The Gregg School Valor is a co-curricular award system designed to supplement and enrich the students’ education at The Gregg School. We also aim to provide opportunities outside the classroom for students to gain accredited qualifications and continue our ethos of a holistic approach to our education.

All students can access the Valor Award by regularly attending co-curricular activities; a student that reaches or exceeds 36 'Valor Hours' will receive a Valor Award. The individual with the most Valor Hours in a year group is recognised at the end of year achievement evening; this can often be over 100 hours!

The higher level Valor Additus Award is attained by amassing the 36 hours of club time for the Valor Award, in addition to completing a club or activity that extends themselves and promotes personal development, often resulting in an external certificate. Such clubs include Duke of Edinburgh, Language Leaders, Sports Leaders, British Sign Language, STEM industrial cadets and many more.
