Extra-curricular activities 

At The Philip Morant School & College, we believe that every young person should experience the world beyond the classroom as an essential part of learning and personal development, whatever their age, ability or circumstances. 

We are committed to achieving the highest standards and delivering an holistic education and experience which prepare our students for the next stage in their education, training or workplace.

Please follow the link to find out more about the clubs and activities we offer throughout the week.

In addition to the above, we also offer the following:  

One-to-one music lessons through Essex Music Services. Students have the opportunity to learn how to play the following instruments – flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, French horn, violin, cello, singing, drums, piano and guitar. Each session is led by a specialist instrumental teacher. Click here for more details.

The Duke of Edinburgh (DofE) programme leads to a Bronze, Silver or Gold Award. It involves helping the community/environment, becoming fitter, developing new skills, planning, training for and completing an expedition and (for Gold only) working with a team on a residential activity. The DofE can be a life-changing experience, a fun time with friends and an opportunity to discover new interests and talents. It is a tool to develop essential skills for life and work, as well as a recognised mark of achievement and respected by employers.

The Brilliant Club is an award-winning university access charity that works across the UK. Its aim is to increase the number of students from underrepresented backgrounds progressing to highly-selective universities. Students selected to join The Scholars Programme will experience university-style learning through seven tutorials and two trips to highly-selective universities. They will be supported by a PhD tutor, teaching a supra-curricular topic based on their current research. For more information visit thebrilliantclub.org or contact the school office

We regularly work with a range of organisations to provide high-quality extra-curricular opportunities including: The Mercury Theatre, The Jack Petchey Foundation, The Anne Frank Trust, The National STEM Learning Centre and the Christian Youth Organisation.
