Extracurricular Events

Here at Norton College we believe it is important to enrich the students’ experiences by offering a wide range of extra-curricular activities that are designed not only to ensure the young people have new and varied experiences but also to ensure students can operate effectively with confidence in the community. The College make good use of a range of local sporting and recreational facilities ranging from rock climbing to football on the all weather football pitch, from horse riding to go–karting, and from fishing to bowling. All activities are open to every student regardless of ability.

Norton College offers a diverse range of extra-curricular activities, events and experiences to complement students’ academic and vocational work. These enrich the students’ progress, widen their experiences and provide another avenue for the development of new skills. 

Many students will never have experienced anything like the activities and events we organise. Therefore, we use these opportunities to inspire them to take up new hobbies and work positively towards a purposeful goal.

All our extra-curricular experiences are designed to help students realise they can take on new challenges and be successful. This builds their confidence and resilience and instils a firm, positive foundation for the future.


Examples of recent events

We regularly organise Parent-Student days. These are one-day courses in practical subjects, such as bricklaying or plastering, which parents and students can engage in together. 

Details of recent activities can be found on our News page. Please contact us for more information on the different activities we offer, or to discuss your own requirements.
