The academic excellence for which JAGS is known is supported by a diverse and exciting extra-curricular programme designed to give girls the opportunity to develop new skills, gain experience of leadership, to help and support others and to have fun. If it’s not here and it’s wanted, we start it – often as a sixth form initiative. This is how the sixth form lunchtime seminar group began, the Feminist group and the JAGS Sailing Club. Music, Drama and PE are all very strong, with voluntary work a further pillar of all we do beyond the classroom.
There is such an extensive range of extra-curricular activities at JAGS, it is hard not to find something to enjoy from the clubs and groups currently on offer at lunchtimes and after school: Japanese taster class, film, public-speaking, debating, dance and drama clubs, amnesty, art, Eco group, Eureka maths, madrigals, music theory, music-making of most kinds, history, current affairs, the ethical scientist and philosophy clubs, chess, Christian Union, AFFCAD UK and other Community Action, crosscountry, waterpolo, rowing, indoor climbing and sports galore.
