020500 Life At Kings Co Curricular Hero Image

King’s College not only offers opportunities for students to achieve good academic results, we actively promote the benefits of a wider curriculum to students.

Participation in co-curricular activities helps promote engagement with the King’s College values and provides a transformative experience through which students can prepare themselves to succeed in the many and varied roles they will undertake in future life.

Benefits include:

  • a broad base of knowledge
  • a desire to learn and understand
  • a sense of one’s place in the global village
  • an experience of other cultures/opinions/religions
  • a desire to contribute, be an active citizen
  • an awareness of inherent responsibilities
  • an opportunity to be challenged
  • a strong individual and communal identification
  • an ability to effect change
  • a respect for others

Students are encouraged to make the most of the opportunities on offer in the cultural, sporting and outdoor education spaces. However it is important that they choose the activities they will get involved in carefully so that they don’t end up over committing themselves.

They should keep in mind the following guidelines:

  • Academic work is the major priority. Students need to be organised so that activities have minimal impact on their academic work.
  • Try and keep a balanced portfolio of activities rather than specialising too early.
  • Don’t over-commit by doing too many activities.
  • Stretch yourself at some stage by trying something you would not normally do.
