Field trips and excursions enrich Campion’s academic curriculum at every age level. From pre-school trips to the Attica Zoological Park to the Year 6 trip to Napflion, Campion Junior School pupils experience travel and new sights which enhance their daily learning.
Senior School field trips related to Science, Geography, Art and languages, as well as participation in Forensics and Debate tournaments and sporting events, give children in Years 7-13 the opportunity to acquire new skills and develop self-awareness.
Campion has always taken Drama seriously. The Junior School holds two productions annually for children of all year groups. Junior staff work hard to create sets and costumes which are a delight to behold. Children put much time and effort into rehearsals to produce musicals and plays which both they and their parents are proud of.
Drama is a subject taught throughout the Senior School from Year 7 and is on offer both at IGCSE and IB.
The Senior School’s Drama and Music departments have a reputation for producing musicals of outstanding quality. Rehearsals are held after school and occasionally on weekends.
Formed in 2011, Campion Debate Club meets after school and aims to provide an opportunity for pupils to develop the kind of communication skills that will make them confident speakers and presenters in any situation.
In this innovative simulation of the United Nations, delegates aged between 14 and 18 will have the opportunity to discuss matters of international importance, enhance their understanding of UN-committee procedures and simultaneously prepare themselves for MUN conferences designed for students at the secondary level of their education.
Music is a vital part of a child’s education. In addition to class music and courses at GCSE and IB levels, instrumental tuition and voice lessons are available during the school day, and orchestras and choirs meet regularly in both schools in preparation for major concerts at Christmas and in spring. Associated Board (ABRSM) examinations are held in school twice per year.
PE is offered at all levels and Campion has a rich extracurricular sports programme in which good sportsmanship is considered the first essential.
Soccer, basketball, tennis, volleyball, rugby, track and field, cross-country and swimming are part of the PE curriculum. Senior teams hold sports practices after school and participate in both local and international events, including the World School Games and the COBIS games.
