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 the early morning and/or later afternoon sessions.

CCAs take place before school, during lunchtimes, after school, and at weekends. 

We are always looking for ways to improve and develop the programme. If you have any suggestions on additional sessions you would like to see please do feel free to contact me; Jasmine Kettler at
