The Co-Curriculum at Mossley Hollins

At Mossley Hollins we value the development of positive character traits as much as we value academic development.

Our co-curricular programme has developed to now include a vast number of clubs and activities.

The increased number and wider diversity of enrichment activities enable all students to participate in the programme.

Every faculty offers enrichment experiences many of which are new to the programme. We are proud that all new staff since September 2021 offer an activity as part of the programme.

Our elective programme was introduced in 2022 and is a programme for all year 7 students. This is a great example of what makes Mossley Hollins different in a hugely positive way to most other schools. Every year 7 student before starting at Mossley Hollins elects for an activity to participate in after school for one hour each Monday afternoon from 3.00pm – 4.00pm. The choice is wide and varied from 3 broad areas which are niche sports, performing arts and outdoor education. We very much hope that having participated in a weekly activity our year 7 students will continue with this beyond year 7.
