Lunchtime Activities

Lunchtimes at Ditcham Park School are a busy time for students.  There is a wide variety of clubs and activities to choose from, with options changing on a termly basis.  Students are encouraged to participate in several different activities and to challenge their comfort zone by trying something new.

Day and Residential Trips

The wider curriculum at Ditcham Park School is complemented by regular day and residential trips.  Some experiences are designed to enhance academic learning while others focus on personal development.

Annually, in addition to a variety of academic day trips, students in Form 1 and 2 participate in a three day residential trip to Calshott Activity Centre where they are given the chance to explore and develop their skills in a range of indoor and outdoor pursuits including sailing, cycling and skiing.  Form 3 students visit Ypres to explore the history of WWI and WWII and all language students have the opportunity to practice their oral skills and experience the culture first hand on a residential trip to Europe.  Additionally, students have the opportunity to participate in a week-long skiing experience to a major European Ski resort.

Performer. Ditcham has given me the confidence to develop as a performer – singing AC/DC at our Arts Festival was a bit different from what I usually sing in the cathedral choir; I loved it.
