Electives - Learning Beyond the Classroom

At Thomas Becket, we recognise the value of education beyond the confines of the traditional classroom environment. As such, we have sought to develop learning opportunities for our students that enrich and support their studies but also allow them to discover new ideas and talents. 

Our new Electives programme allows students to take part in up to 6 different enrichment opportunities every school year - each one with a clear vision and aim in developing key skills and attributes of value. 

Here are some of the Electives on offer this year:

  • Duke of Edinburgh Award 
  • Seasonal Community Crafts
  • Work in our Thomas Becket School Newspaper Team (journalist/ graphic designer/ editing/ publishing and more)
  • Coding
  • Science Research - Crest Awards
  • Yoga
  • Forest School
  • Sewing
  • Young Enterprise Tenner Challenge
  • Indoor & Outdoor Individual and Team Sports (inc football, tennis, darts, athletics, basketball, netball)

and so much more! 

Take a look below at our Electives Programme Booklet for further information.
