Societies and Clubs
Societies and clubs aim to extend students interests beyond the curriculum.
In the Senior School, academic societies feature two main types of events: firstly, students have the chance to hear external speakers and to reflect on new aspects of their subjects, which they might wish to delve into further; secondly, many subject societies ask students to make short presentations of their own research into an area of particular interest. Such activities help to develop students’ presentational skills - another key aim of Le Regent education - and the societies are run by a team of senior students, helping to develop their leadership skills as they organise meetings for their peers. Societies also like to organise diverse events, such as debates, film evenings and practical sessions that introduce off-syllabus content.
Senior School students also have the opportunity to participate in national and international forums like the Model United Nations (MUN).
Pupils are encouraged to take part in as many as they wish, and discuss their plans with tutors to ensure that regular prep commitments can be met.
