Internationally-ranked universities require pupils to not only show superior academic results, but to demonstrate competence in critical thinking, creativity, originality, teamwork, problem solving, independence, and commitment. Activities outside the academic curriculum facilitate the development of these vital skills.
Our extracurricular activities provide opportunities for pupils to face new challenges, work with different people, and develop confidence, independence and self-esteem. Pupils at Wycombe Abbey School Changzhou choose sport and extracurricular activities to supplement their normal lessons in order to deepen their understanding and interest in their subjects in a recreational and entertaining environment.
In addition to Music, Drama and Sport pupils may undertake the internationally recognised Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, enter the Model United Nations, Mathematics Challenge and World Scholars Cup. The school offers many academic and cultural enrichment opportunities including Digital Art, TedX, Robotics, School Newspaper, Photography (the School has its own dark room) and Dance.
