We believe learning does not stop when the school day ends. School is about developing as a whole person, not just academically. To help your child to pursue their interests and discover new ones, Phoenix offers fun, mind-expanding and exciting after-school activities.
Activities range from chess to trampolining and gardening to basketball. There is a fitness club, football coaching and an environmental care group. We also provide business enterprise events, enrichment challenges and other departures from the usual timetable to keep your child inspired and engaged.
Learning outside the classroom is embedded in the curriculum – we arrange trips to the theatre, events, debates and inter-school challenges. Many lessons take place on our farm, a unique facility in central London where our pupils get involved in growing crops and looking after animals.
Our sports facilities are excellent. We have an all-weather pitch, a fitness suite and a swimming pool. Sport plays an important part of life at Phoenix, both in PE lessons and after school. There are regular fixtures in football, rounders, basketball, netball, cricket and athletics.
All Foundations pupils are offered a free residential outdoor pursuit course, which gives them the chance to bond with each other and to take part in a range of different activities which will challenge and motivate them.
Older pupils have the opportunity to work towards the Duke of Edinburgh award.
Homework Club is an engaging and fun environment for students in Year 7 who would extra help with their maths, English and science.
Teachers and volunteers are available to support students with homework and their projects every Thursday from 3:30pm to 5:30pm in our well-resourced new library.
Phoenix Youth Club offers a wide range of activities in a safe environment. Each term, we offer a vast selection of sports, including basketball, archery and kick-boxing. We make mosaics and herbal soap, learn how to sew and to make jewellery, and have beauty workshops.” We also have themed discussions on a range of topics including bullying, drugs, racism and personal safety.
We have an exciting programme of school trips that help to broaden our students’ horizons and that take learning outside the classroom.
