A well-rounded education will take you out of the classroom. We offer exciting opportunities for you to develop a wide range of soft skills, such as leadership and self-confidence.

All our activities take place on a Friday from 3.00pm to 5.00pm. They are part of your Friday options. But once you sign up, attendance becomes part of your curriculum.

How do you choose your activities?

You can opt to:

  • Join the Combined Cadet Force (CCF)
  • Take part in Outdoor Education
  • Participate in School and Community Service (SCS)

If you are at Habs Girls in Year 9, you will choose your activities at that stage, then begin doing them in years 10, 11 and 12. If you join us in the Sixth Form, you will choose your options when you start.

Combined Cadet Force (CCF)

Combined Cadet Force (CCF) is an educational partnership between secondary schools and the Ministry of Defence. It can include the Royal Navy and Royal Marines, Army or Royal Air Force sections.

Over 500 secondary schools across the UK take part, offering you a broad range of challenging, exciting and adventurous activities. CCF will develop your personal responsibility, leadership and self-discipline.

At Habs, you can choose from:

  • Army
  • Navy
  • RAF

School and Community Service (SCS)

Through our School Community Service (SCS), you can get involved in projects designed to help you think about others and the world around you. It will also build your volunteering, sustainability and animal care skills. You could take part in:

  • Project Linus – learn to use our sewing machines to make patchwork quilts sent to children’s hospitals and women refugees
  • Recycling – collect paper and plastic from around our school campus
  • Chickens and allotments – feed and care for rescue chickens

Duke of Edinburgh (DofE)

Habs Girls is actively involved in the Duke of Edinburgh awards, which you can pursue at Bronze, Silver and Gold levels.

Taking part will set personal challenges for you, pushing your personal boundaries. It is also a lot of fun and a chance to make new friends.
