Extra-Curricular Activities

Additional to our Enrichment and Intervention provision Great Torrington School has a breadth of activities which are available for pupils at lunch-time and after school.  The GTS team is instrumental in organising many of these events, often produced jointly with pupils.  Great Torrington’s Got Talent, Summer and Christmas Concerts, GTS Film Premiere, Junior Sports Leader programmes, Rotary Club competitions such as Young Chef, Photographer and Writer of the Year and of course the Youth Speaks debating competitions are all fine examples of what is on offer across the board.

In addition a wide range of sport, music, drama, art, dance, science, language and geography activities/clubs are available.  The library is open for pupils both before and after school and can be used for the completion of home learning.  There is an active reading club with reading mentors every day of the week before school and during registration.
