Learning does not stop at the classroom door and at Stover School pupils benefit from participation in a wide range of activities.
The activities programme is an important part of the school day and we are encouraging every pupil to try a range of these at home where possible during #RemoteLearning.
The activities programme is designed to develop pupils as individuals, enrich education and help recognise talent and potential. We encourage every pupil to try a range of these, which can lead to life-long hobbies and passions.
A popular club for pupils from aged 7 upwards is Riding Club. Children at Stover have the opportunity to ride every day at stables close to the school. Beginners quickly become more confident and competent around horses by a variety of fun activities, although the more serious side of how to care for and tack a horse is also taught. Pupils from the Senior School also have the option to join the Equestrian Team.
As the children move up the school into Year 7, activities and supported study take place every day from 12noon until 12.45pm. Two clubs that are particularly popular with our older pupils are the shooting clubs. Our Clay Club is run by John Bannister a qualified BASC shotgun Coach and NRA Range Conducting Officer with over 30 years’ experience.
