Outside the classroom

At Grimwade House we believe learning experiences should build academic skills alongside social awareness, independence and confidence. Offering a range of educational experiences outside the classroom are a key part of our approach.

As students progress from Junior to Upper Primary, we aim to gradually create a broader understanding of the world beyond our campus grounds. Our core activities beyond the classroom include:  

  • Outdoor education Our carefully designed Prep to Year 6 programme that builds towards leadership, collaboration and independence.

  • Sport A full range of indoor and outdoor sporting opportunities, including inter-House and inter-school competitions using our age-specific facilities. 

  • Community engagement We gradually expand students’ understanding of the communities around them, instilling a sense of leadership through service.

  • Before and after school care A purpose-built on-campus space where students play, relax, catch up on homework and build new friendships with their peers.

  • Grimwade Club Our inclusive after school programme that offers a broad-ranging set of recreational activities, such as swimming, skateboarding and coding.
