Extra-Curricular Activities and Trips

“We believe that an all-round education should offer each child the opportunity to try as many activities as possible in order to develop varied and balanced interests in life”

– Alistair Downs, Head of School –

At The RGS Guildford in Qatar, learning extends beyond the classroom: school events, extra-curricular activities, visiting speakers, special topics, visits and trips provide a wide range of experiences that support and enhance pupils learning throughout the School.

Older pupils enjoy an annual, residential trip and all pupils enjoy day trips connected to curriculum topics. These support pupils with their learning and help them to develop an understanding of the wider world.

Throughout the year we celebrate a variety of special days which includes UN Mother Language Day, International Week, Qatar National Day, Art Week, Book Week, Maths, IT and Science Days as well as our annual Health Week which is always a highlight of the school calendar. Such days form an important part of our wider curriculum and ensure that pupils benefit from a wide range of opportunities and experiences.  

An extended day is available to all of our pupils through a wide range of extra-curricular activities (clubs) that are driven by the interests of the pupils and the staff. They include dance, cooking, tennis, football, art, languages and games. There is no limit to the activities we welcome. If it is possible and enough children are interested, we will do it.
