    Extra Curricular Activities

    The school has a long tradition of out of class activities. They are organised to develop our students' skills and abilities, provide an opportunity for all to excel, develop personal qualities and assist in emphasising the school as a vibrant community, rather than simply a place where children go for lessons.

Year 7 students will be invited once class teachers have assessed a broad range of work - please speak to your teacher if you think you might qualify!


    • Netball - Netball training consists of skills and games play. We will coach the skills of attacking and defending, team tactics and strategies and also encourage and guide players to umpire and take on officiating roles. We will create teams from the participants who would like to be involved in fixtures to play after school at QEGS and at away venues over the season. The most successful team for each year will then be entered into the County Netball Tournament where they play up to 11 schools from Derbyshire for the County Cup Trophy. At years 9,11 and 6th form these competitions go through to a Regional round, playing schools from around the East Midlands.
    • We welcome players with all levels of experience and only ask you come with energy and kit!
    • Trampolining - Trampolining is a participation based club that coaches students from basic shapes to somersaults, refining one move to performing tariffed routines and basic coaching and judging experience. We will regularly use the ipad to develop your skill ready for our friendly in-house competition against local schools.
    • No experience necessary and all years welcome.

    What is Warhammer and Warhammer Club?

    • Warhammer is a table top game played with miniatures that are collected, assembled and painted by the hobbyist. Warhammer and Games Workshop have three main gaming types that are currently played at school by a variety of students. These are Warhammer 40K (Futuristic Space Battles) Warhammer Fantasy and Wahammer Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit.
    • During the two hours on Thursdays students play games with their chosen armies and sometimes paint and assemble models. We are also having a drive to create whole tabletop scenery so that battles can be more realistic. The club is not just restricted to Warhammer, ANY scale modelling or scale minature battles such as 'Flames of War' are also played and many students prefer the realistic setting of WW2.
    • The club actively encourages good social and diplomacy skills and there is a huge emphasis on rules and regulations which encompasses Literacy and Numeracy. All age groups are welcome and the club has a variety of year group attending.

    Astronomy Club

    • The School Astronomy Club meets monthly from 6.30pm-8.00pm in room 401. Students have the opportunity to use the school’s telescopes and binoculars, with help and advice from volunteers from the local White Peak Astronomical Observing Group. In the case of cloud or inclement weather, the club will still go ahead with alternative Astronomy activities on offer. Students from all years are welcome and areencouraged to join the club, and in recent years we have had students from Years 7–13 participating.
