Whether you want to cycle Coast-to-Coast, organise a fund-raising activity for charity, perform in the school play, trek across Southern Iceland or Poland, play in a band at Eurodisney, or simply relax and join the film club, you can do it at Bedale High School. The school offers excellent extra-curricular opportunities
The activities are designed to broaden and develop the mind and body. Students have regular opportunities to visit museums, exhibitions and theatres, as well as longer residential trips both within the UK and abroad. Students also have the opportunity to take part in the Duke of Edinburgh award.
The school holds competitive fixtures for boys and girls against other schools which take place after school in sports such as rugby, golf, cross-country, tennis, football, athletics, cricket and swimming.
We also run a series of study support lessons for a range of subjects throughout each year through every lunchtime for all years, with targeted intervention strategies at key points in Years 10 and 11. This programme includes subject surgeries, Saturday Schools and special holiday sessions.
Here are our timetables for this year:
Military Kids Club
Bedale High School runs a Military Kids Club for children from forces families and their friends. The Military Kids Club is part of a national initiative and we link into other local groups, meeting up with students in clubs from other schools. The club meets once a week at lunchtime and provides an opportunity for forces children and their friends to socialise and get to know each other. The Club involves many activities including baking, craft making, games and quizzes. We run three trips a year outside school time for members including going to the cinema, visiting local attractions and theme parks.
On a more serious note, students from the Military Kids Club represent Bedale High School at remembrance and commemorative events associated with Remembrance Sunday. Students run the poppy appeal in school, attend an annual commemoration at Ripon Cathedral as well as more local events in Bedale. They have also represented children from service families , speaking at the North of England Conference on Service Children.
Two of our Military Kids Club members have recently become Ambassadors representing the school at a recent student voice conference in Harrogate.
