On Tuesday 3rd September, the new intake of Year 7 students began their first academic term at Charters School in Sunningdale. With students in other years starting term the following day, the Year 11 Prefect Mentors were able to show the younger students around the school site and answer any of their questions.

The school runs a vast array of extra-curricular clubs and during the afternoon the students were able to find out about the exciting variety of activities on offer at the Freshers Fayre.

Alongside the obvious PE and Sports clubs were the less obvious, such as fencing, trampolining, and squash.  In addition, students could join Robotics, Science and Music & Film Clubs to name but a few.

Headteacher Mr Richard Pilgrim said, “One of the things we are most proud about at Charters is the extensive range of extra-curricular activities we offer our students.  Participating in the wider life of the school is crucial to a rich and rounded education and it is often through these activities that we see our students maturing and developing as young people which has a significant knock-on effect for their progress in lessons.”

All the students had a fantastic time and were spoiled for choice with the clubs available.  Most children signed up for a club and were very excited to be at Charters School.
