We aim to provide a wide range of activities to suit the needs of all of our pupils. We have extensive sports facilities and a number of sports coaches support our PE department in providing many clubs including Hockey, Rugby, Cricket, Athletics and Badminton. We have also a wide range of lunchtime and after school clubs including Scripture Union, Numeracy Ninjas, Warhammer and Film Club, so there is always the opportunity to learn something new and meet some new friends.
Antrim Grammar School offers a range of traditional sports together with a wide breadth of opportunity for those who simply want to participate. All this is made possible by the School's excellent facilities: 2G and 3G pitches, sports halls, tennis courts, a fitness suite and excellent grass pitches. Whatever one's level, there will be sport to enjoy at Antrim Grammar School.
The leadership role of the pupils in the life of the School is vital in supporting an ethos of strong community and innovation which speaks for the entire pupil body. There is a wide range of opportunities for pupils to contribute to the well-being and development of the School and the wider community at all stages of their career and which successfully supports the leadership potential of all. Pupils are encouraged to contribute formally and informally in a number of ways and through a variety of democratic structures. We believe that it is important for all our pupils have the opportunity to develop their leadership skills from Year 8 right through to Sixth Form. Leadership opportunities include Student Voice, Captains and Vice-Captains in Sport, Class Captains, the Student Leadership Council, Digital Leaders, Learning and Teaching Group, Literacy and Numeracy Leaders, Prefects, Sixth Form Buddies, Subject Mentors, Language and Science Ambassadors and the Sound and Lighting Team with responsibility for all school events.
Awarding Honours to our pupils is very important because we want to acknowledge their commitment and loyalty to extra-curricular activities. There is a formal process for this to happen and pupils can apply using the relevant application form.
All pupils have many opportunities for school trips throughout their time with us. Some of these trips are an important part of academic courses and occur during term time, but many are optional trips during the school holidays. It is our belief that each trip provides a valuable experience that will help all pupils to develop essential skills for life; confidence, independence, self-sufficiency, respecting others and their property, patience, empathy and cultural awareness.
