The Creative Arts and Digital Learning Centre is at the heart of the school where students can meet other students with shared interests. Here’s a list of some of the Clubs and Societies that come here to meet.
Dungeons and Dragons club meet every Wednesday from 1.30pm/2pm to 4pm. There’s a mixture of students from various year groups who join together as Wizards, Warlocks, Sorcerers or Druids where they must work together to solve dilemmas, engage in battles, explore, and gather treasure and knowledge. Dungeons and Dragons can help students develop their verbal, critical thinking, and creative skills and is a great way for different year groups to meet and interact with each other.
