When a girl immerses herself in an activity that peaks her interest and stimulates her imagination, she adds depth to her voice. Trafalgar Castle School’s diverse student clubs and activities, many of which were created in consultation with our students, help girls discover who they are and how they intend to engage with the world.
Our clubs and activities emphasize empowerment by enabling students to shape the focus of a group and define its objectives. These low-risk, high-value opportunities reinforce for our students that being engaged, speaking up, having influence and pursuing passions lead to meaningful lives.
One of the most adaptable areas of our program, student interest ensures that our offerings are relevant, responsive and enthusiastically embraced. In encouraging our girls to respond to the changing context of the world beyond our walls, we ensure that a vibrant experience is available to all.
