Emmanuel College provides a wide range of opportunities for students to take part in co-curricular activities in the arts, sports and academic pursuits. We encourage all of our students to get involved in the co-curricular life of the College, as we are confident that it will not only enrich their time here, but also positively influence their character.

We have a strong Creative Arts department which offers a wide range of activities, including the annual College production, choirs, musical ensembles and art clubs. In addition, we offer instrumental and London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA) lessons, at a further cost. Each year, hundreds of our young people take instrumental, or LAMDA exams and many more participate in our major College events, productions and concerts. 

Emmanuel College enjoys a strong reputation for competitive sports, with College teams regularly competing in regional and national events. Co-curricular sport is part of the core provision for all year groups, and local Saturday fixtures and sports tours add to the list of opportunities. We have teams competing in fourteen major sports and opportunities to participate in sports training and clubs daily.

As well as sports and the arts, our staff teams from every department offer co-curricular activities, so there is something for everyone.
