Co-curricular Programme

Our co-curricular programme helps provide students with a well rounded, culturally rich education through activities and experiences that enhance their learning

Co-curricular gives our students opportunities to try new and varied activities that may not strictly fit into the curriculum, but that develop character, resilience and motivation, and encourage them to pursue wider goals. It helps to teach life skills that benefit students beyond the classroom, and can develop an appreciation for cultural and community issues, teamwork and social responsibility.

Take a look at some of our co-curricular trips and co-curricular after school activities, clubs and societies that many of our students have got involved in over the past year.

We are Active Citizens

Active citizens do many things to improve the lives of others. They contribute to social justice in their community by taking action on issues in order to make a difference. They question the way things are done.

Carleton High School provides authentic opportunities for students to become active citizens. The many fundraising opportunities that are available are just one of the ways are students help contribute to society and develop their leadership skills.

Take a look at the videos below to see how our students came together in 2019/20 to raise over £8000 for some worthwhile causes.

Welcome to Performing Arts

At Carleton, we believe in the power of performing arts to develop confidence and self esteem in young people and are proud of the exceptional facilities we have to offer our students.  Throughout the year our performing arts department put on fantastic performances that give the professionals a run for their money!

As a parent, if you have witnessed your child involved in a musical or dramatic production, you will know how much good it does for their confidence.  We therefore offer an array of opportunities for students to take part in performing arts.  Whether it's acting, singing, dancing or helping out backstage, what matters is being part of a team and extending their experiences beyond the classroom.

Welcome to our PE Department

At Carleton High School, we have incredible facilities to ensure your children can get involved in a wide range of sporting activities.  Students may wish to join to stay fit and have fun, or they may choose to represent the school and play competitively in a wide range of teams such as rugby, football and netball.

Our indoor facilities are matched by our outdoor provision. We have several football and rugby pitches and outdoor tennis courts to complement our indoor gym, sports hall and fitness suite. We strive to offer an inclusive and dynamic co-curricular sporting programme for all Carleton High School students, whatever their interests and abilities.

Carleton High School is an inclusive environment.  If you are a parent/carer of a child with special educational needs and want to learn more about how we could support your child, please email and our SENCo, Miss Barker, will be more than happy to answer your queries.

Incredible Facilities


The Library is the place where our students can find the resources they need to support their academic study and is also a quiet environment where they may enjoy recreational reading. Our librarian is always on hand to offer advice, help students find the books they need and issue them for home study. The Library also houses a computer suite with facilities for accessing the internet, printing and photocopying and is used by students for both project work and daily homework.  It remains open after school until 4.00pm

It provides an excellent multi-functional and flexible performance space for theatrical productions and musical events, with seating for up to 500 guests. Theatrical and musical productions are enhanced by excellent sound equipment and professional lighting facilities, operated from a purpose built state of the art technical studio.

Our dance studio is fully mirrored so our budding dancers can fully immerse themselves in their craft.
