At Tavistock College we have an extensive programme of activities and opportunities for students to take part in with the aim of expanding their horizons, qualifying them in essential skills and equipping them to face the challenges of a diverse world. This Personal Development programme is at once available to all and yet offers much scope for an individual student to find their talents, hone their skills and discover passions and enthusiasm for challenging themselves and working in teams.
Students get involved in team building days of raft building and kayaking at Siblyback Lake; over night residentials learning skills like archery at Roadford Lake; taking part in World Challenge trips to Croatia, Morocco and Iceland; sailing around England and the Channel on Tall Ships; conquering the Ten Tors Challenge; gaining their Duke of Edinburgh Awards; working in the community; taking part in environmental challenges and workshops; gaining Lifesaving, Babysitting and First Aid qualifications; raising huge amounts of money for charity through fundraising; working on the Representing Year groups and taking part in our sponsored Hikes, including the 40 mile challenge. There are many more opportunities for students to take part and the wealth of extra curricular clubs offer some of them.
Clubs offered are as diverse as the student body: from urban dance club to rugby, headstart homework club to climbing, film club to cookery club, choir to languages clubs. A full list is available below and we welcome new ideas from students as to extra curricular activities they may wish to take part in.
The staff at Tavistock College are fundamentally concerned with educating the whole child and making sure that students are fully aware of all the challenges and opportunities that life has to offer.
Below is a sample of some of the activities that are offered to students throughout the year:
