Millais School provides a host of activities that stretch the pupils’ learning beyond the classrooms. There are a number of school based enrichment days which provide a varied and engaging for each year group. These culminate in Activities Week in July which includes a residential visit for Year 9 in Ardres.
Further to these enrichment opportunities, during Spring 2014 more than 350 girls from all years were involved in extracurricular activities including a very successful News Team, some of whom presented the weather in Chinese and Japanese on a BBC News programme while others went to London to interview Michael Gove the Education Secretary which was on the 6 O’Clock News.
There has also been a visit by Physics and Design Technology students to the Goodwood Festival of Speed, our talented musicians have played in the Central Band of the Royal Air Force and a very successful Magistrates Court Mock Trial Team have reached the National Finals of the competition.
Each year we enter a team of year 11 girls in the world’s largest walking event in Holland. This takes place in July over four days during which 46,000 walkers from over 70 different countries cover the 100 mile course. Training sessions take place during the Autumn and Spring terms before the final team selection.
Our students are also involved with the community organising numerous and creative events for charities or performing in groups as musicians, dancers and singers for local senior citizens. A small group of Year 9 and 10 girls have recently started an Interact Club at the school with the support of Horsham Rotarians.
