Senior Extra-Curricular

A Maynard education is very much more than just about academic achievement and we pride ourselves on our all-round, holistic education.

Our sporting calendar throughout the year is packed with events, clubs, fixtures and competitions and we are seasoned national campaigners across the school for hockey, netball, basketball and athletics; our Art Department is so good we are often mistaken for a specialist art school by visitors to our exhibitions; Drama and the Performing Arts play a key role in the day-to-day life of The Maynard – over half of our girls play an instrument, we boast 10-12 drama productions each year (including the biennial staff play) and our choirs are regularly booked to perform at outside venues, such is their reputation.

Our co-curricular programme plays a vital role in developing skills and prepares our students for adult life. Each week, we host over 60 varied clubs during the extended lunch break or after school; we have an outstanding record in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Scheme; our Ten Tors teams excel every year; the MUN love a decent debate on far ranging topics and our Young Enterprise team regularly win the top regional prizes for their innovation and sustainable designs. All this in addition to supporting a huge network of girls achieving some remarkable personal endeavours in their own time!
