Other Clubs & Societies
Chess club is on every Wednesday and starts at 1:15pm in M3. It is an enthusiastic club and the students get very involved and enjoy it thoroughly. They get to bring a friend and play a fun, or can be a competitive, game of chess. It's a great way to find some mates.... check mates that is!
See you there!
Christian Union at Denmark Road High School
Christian Union (CU for short) is a relaxed lunchtime session for anyone (any religion,no religion or unsure) to come and listen to talks about being a Christian whilst balancing school life and stigma but also staying true to individual values and being the best version of yourself that you can be. We also have discussions and debates encouraging difficult questions . The club also allows you to make friends with people from other years and develop an understanding of how being a Christian doesn't mean you are not a normal person with the stress of school life too!
· We meet every Monday Lunchtime in H2 at 1:20 pm (if this changes we will send out an email)
I ran a drama club for year 7 for two years. It was a great opportunity for both myself and the younger students to gain in confidence and have fun. We met once a week, warming up by playing drama and/or word games, then carried out varied tasks to build on character development, staging and overall performance. This included small skits, improvisation activities and even a group production which we put on at the end of the year for the the rest of year 7 to watch. I think that it is a great opportunity to run a club within the school as it builds up multiple transferable skills and allows you to get to know different people.
Meeting weekly on Wednesday lunchtimes, we present on various LGBT issues and offer open discussions between the group. Our anonymous ‘question box’ is used so students can ask the leaders questions and share facts, and receive honest advice or answers or subjects ranging from coming out to personal identity. We have previously covered topics such as LGBT+ history and media, and debated topics such as over-labelling. Our group is open to all people from Year 9 and up.
