Clubs and Societies
All pupils are encouraged to join clubs or societies which take place throughout the school week and sometimes at weekends. Some clubs and societies may involve field trips, or can involve pupils taking part in competitions, such as Debating or Model United Nations. Whilst we offer many of the core clubs and societies routinely found in schools, such as Chess, we also offer others that are unique to Norwich School, for example we run the only school-based Model Arctic Council in Europe.
A Societies Fair in the early part of the Michaelmas Term sees the clubs and societies given the opportunity to advertise themselves to attract new members, with pupils setting up and running stalls, creating information packages or short presentations.
As with Community Service or the Charities Committee, clubs and societies offer pupils the chance to develop leadership and to influence the way a club is run. Many are started by the pupils themselves and much enterprise is evident in their evolution. Green group, Herculites (the junior Classics club) board games, E23 Radio and Aspect Film are prime examples.
There is a club or society for all tastes and levels, from the intellectual approach of the Erpingham Society, which sees pupils present academic papers to the audience, through to the very popular group called The Fellowship (Dungeons and Dragons). This group sees pupils work as a team in one of the most imaginative and creative table top games ever devised. We welcome new ideas for clubs and societies and new ones are formed each year based on pupil interests.
Many pupils take part in the various debating clubs and the intellectual demands of the Model UN or Model Arctic Council are increasingly popular. Outdoor pursuits are catered for in the form of the Eighth Norwich Sea Scouts and the Duke of Edinburgh award scheme, both of which offer leadership and service opportunities for older pupils.
The majority of the clubs and societies start after the House Music Festival. Please click on the link to view the weekly schedule of our clubs and societies.
