Co-Curricular Activities (CCAs)

Co-Curricular Activities (CCAs) are an important part of school life at Uplands. They offer students an opportunity to learn and develop skills outside of their academic studies, often in areas they may never have experienced before.

All students are encouraged to participate in at least 1 CCA per term. The intention is for them to broaden their interests beyond the classroom, in a less formal atmosphere and in areas they have chosen. It is also a great opportunity to make new friends, and learn from like-minded students.

Some CCAs give students the opportunity to travel, represent the school and experience what it feels to win and/or lose in competitive situations. We find that many students choose to participate in more than just the recommended 1 per term and become involved in as many different areas as possible. With this in mind we do offer additional buses, for those registered to use the school bus service, to all students to participate in early morning and/or later afternoon sessions.

CCAs take place before school, during lunchtimes, after school and at weekends. Below is a sample of the different activities offered;

Creative
Art, Chess, Choir, Construction, Drama, Food Tech, Languages, Masterchef, Mathematics, Model United Nations (MUN), Orchestra, Sci-Fi, Science, Technology

Action
Aikido, Athletics, Badminton, Basketball, Cricket, Cross Country, Dance, Fencing, Floor Ball, Golf, Gymnastics, Karate, Kendo, Netball, Swimming, T-Ball, Table Tennis, Taekwondo, Tennis, Touch Rugby, Tweenies Tabata, Ultimate Frisbee, Volleyball, Water Polo, Wushu, Yoga

Service

Students are reminded that schools, colleges and universities often look very closely at this aspect of school life when considering admissions or scholarships. At Uplands we value the benefits so highly that active participation in the programme is recognised in reports.
