Enrichment Activities including School Trips, Clubs and Productions
School clubs and societies and the provision of facilities for enrichment activities are regarded as of great importance. Our clubs add a further dimension to the recreational and social aspect of life at Blenheim and also provide excellent opportunities for students to develop their skills, talents and interests.
There is an extensive range of extra-curricular clubs at Blenheim, including sports training, drop-in / support / catch-up sessions and other activities, both before and after school. Some clubs are specifically aimed at certain years, whilst others are available for all. Among the many activities are:

The school also takes part in the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, and has participated successfully in the Young Enterprise scheme for many years. Within the creative arts, music concerts are organised within and outside the school, and children are given every encouragement to perform.
For sports players there is a comprehensive fixtures calendar which enables students to represent Blenheim against local schools and in District and National competitions. These matches and competitions provide extensive chances for students to achieve in sport and also enhance their School experience as a whole.
Each year the School Production is held in the Summer term and numerous students are involved whether they are involved on stage, behind the scenes or indeed producing the music. Last year, we had a very successful production, 'Oliver!' which was held at the Leatherhead Theatre.
We also hold numerous trips and visits throughout the year which are always very popular.
