We are very proud of the wide variety of extra-curricular activities on offer at our school. Whatever you are interested in, we encourage all pupils to get involved in as many different additional activities as possible. Whether you enjoy sport, the arts, technology or any of the other exciting things we have to offer – make sure you get involved. Doing this will help you to learn in many different ways as well as introducing you to new friends. For many people, it is by joining a school club that they develop interests and hobbies which then stay with them for life.

We have a very strong record in sport for both inclusion and success, see our Roll of Honour here

We have a very strong music department for those who already play an instrument. If you don’t already play an instrument, we have lots of opportunities for you to start. Make KMS the start of your musical adventure.

Practise facilities are in use most days with pupils using them to develop skills, prepare for both instrumental and vocal exams and/or to form a Band.

Performance opportunities are given and pupils are encouraged to take part in events in school and in the community.  One of our first opportunities is our Showcase Evening in the Autumn Term.

Each year pupils perform at Kirkburton church where we hold our Carol Service.

Every Christmas Musica Kirklees’ Staff Orchestra and/or Staff Rock Band are invited to come and entertain pupils. These concerts are great fun and informative, with the ensembles playing diverse repertoire and introducing the different musical instruments together with giving our pupils access to high-quality live music.
