At Grantleigh, we believe that sport plays in important role in promoting friendship, team-awareness and self-confidence in addition to physical well-being. As our school has a strong sports performance record, we offer a variety of sports activities that include specialised activities such as equestrian. While healthy competition is encouraged, the enjoyment of the game is not compromised.
Our approach to sports is based on the long-term athlete development (LTAD) model, which governs the formation of policies, aims and objectives. The LTAD guides us on appropriate ages at which to introduce aspects of sports. The goal is to develop a lifelong love for physical activity that will last well into learners’ adult lives.

Culture is one of the foundational pillars of developing a well-balanced learner and plays a great role in broadening learners’ reference frameworks. Our learners have the opportunity to participate in several cultural activities, regardless of their interests and abilities in sport or academics.
Many of these activities benefit learners in the classroom and beyond. For example, early exposure to music lessons greatly improve the learner’s concentration, memory, fine motor skills, listening and communication skills, and self-confidence.

Clubs and societies
Grantleigh also has several clubs and societies that allow learners with similar interests to build relationships and collaborate in various projects. We guide learners interested in entering the President’s Award programme to complete the required sections, while the interact club organises outreach programmes.

We offer two Curro Create programmes aimed at helping learners develop their creative talents to their full potential. Curro Arts Superhero (CAS) is an internal creative mentorship platform with a grading element, where learners are encouraged to discover, develop and display their inherent creative talents.
Learners have the opportunity to participate in the annual Curro Create National Youth Theatre Festival, wherein schools enter a one-act play in any genre and official language. The winning plays are chosen through a series of adjudications by world-class theatre-makers, who closely mentor learners throughout the process.
Extramural activities are offered by external tutors or coaches. They are offered at an additional cost and generally take place on the school’s premises. Some extramural activities are aimed at improving or supporting academic learning or mental and physical development, while others are purely recreational.

Academic and cultural enrichment (ACE)
Our ACE programme provides enrichment opportunities outside the classroom to learners who achieve in humanities or sciences. These opportunities include excursions to theatres, art galleries or universities. The programme serves as great motivation for learners to achieve academically in their chosen field, in order to benefit from these excursions.
