"Every child is unique with different talents to be developed. Time outside of lessons is not time apart from learning, but an extension of it"
Blundell’s offers a rich and varied co-curricular programme. From the Pre-Prep to the Sixth Form, pupils are encouraged to involve themselves in a myriad of opportunities outside of the classroom. While our pupils consistently perform at regional and national levels in sport, the creative arts and outdoor pursuits, the goal is to enable them to develop personal qualities alongside interests and fascinations that will stay with them far beyond school. We want them to discover something that will light them up for its own sake whether that be mountain walking or rugby, music or acting.
From the early years at Blundell’s Prep, an exciting and varied programme of activities is on offer to our pupils. The opportunity to be on the stage, in a sports team or playing an instrument is just part of everyday life. As they progress through the school, outdoor pursuits in the beautiful Devon countryside and expeditions beyond, challenge and develop our pupils’ character and resilience. Whether it is the knitting club, gardening, Gold Duke of Edinburgh expeditions to Morocco or Peru, learning martial arts or to fence or sail, we hope that every pupil finds something that they love. This develops self-esteem, confidence and the senses of achievement and belonging.
For those who choose to specialise to a high level, we have the coaches and teachers with the skills to develop their talent. Many have gone on to make a career out of an interest fostered at school.
