Discover who you are and what you love through our co-curricular programme. We provide young Dragons with the opportunity to nurture their individual talents and to grow as team players. We help to develop their confidence to try their hand at something new. Go on and give it a try!

Fostering Confidence

The Dragon has an enviable programme of over 100 co-curricular activities, guaranteeing something for everyone. From animation club to yoga, rock group to roller skating, skiing to surfing and gardening to coding, there are countless opportunities for children to develop their creative talents and build their confidence, physical health, and general wellbeing. 

We make the most of our location on the River Cherwell and our extensive sports and leisure facilities, meaning that activities such as paddle-boarding, sculling and lifeguarding are always on offer. And we regularly ask students about the kind of activities they want to get involved in too, so if you have a request for a more unusual activity, extra training or a specific qualification, please just ask.

In sport we strive for excellence, but we don’t believe in ‘competition over all’. The value of sport isn’t just in the physical benefits or a healthy sense of competition, but in the confidence, team spirit, resilience and sense of pride generated by taking part.

Wherever you’re heading and whatever you aspire to, the performing arts can help you on your journey. Drama cultivates the curiosity and confidence required in any industry or office and, at the Dragon, the Arts are our superpower.
