We are extremely proud of the wealth of opportunities we provide for students to go ‘beyond the curriculum’, which exist to enhance their personal development and support their cultural and social awareness, so that can flourish into well-rounded individuals. This underpins our commitment to values, care and achievement. Below are examples of the types of experiences we can engage with, as well an example of our Extra-Curricular Timetable, which changes every term.

Extra-Curricular and Enrichment Opportunities

Extra Curricular Timetable

Please find below our extensive AHS Extra-curricular offer at both Lunchtime and After-school. These timetables are LIVE and we will update them over time as clubs are added and/or removed. Please also note that any club highlighted in YELLOW was a direct suggestion from last year’s Extra-curricular Student Voice Survey. Thank you for everyone who contributed and came up with some excellent suggestions!

Music Concerts

Each year there is always a wide selection of opportunities to perform, these include:

  • Carol Service in the Minster
  • School Show
  • Summer Concerts

Instrumental and Vocal Music Lessons

Students at Archbishop’s School have the opportunity to take up or continue instrumental tuition each year. We have a number of visiting instrumental and vocal tutors who offer lessons at Archbishop’s School. We offer the following lessons in school:

  • Violin/Viola
  • Classical guitar
  • Electric/acoustic guitar
  • Bass guitar
  • Voice
  • Piano/keyboard
  • Drums
  • Woodwind
  • Brass

These instrumental and vocal teachers operate as independent tutors using the music department as a base. Parents deal directly with instrumental teachers, but an application form can be found below. Please complete the google form to be contacted by an appropriate tutor with more information for your son or daughter: Instrumental/Vocal Music Lessons Request Form

City of York Council Arts Education Bursary

The City of York Council’s Art Education Service offers an annual bursary of up to £300 towards the cost of lessons with a City of York Council approved instrumental tutor.

The bursary is open to students who meet any of the following criteria:

  • free school meals
  • looked after children
  • are on the SEN register for their school

Instrumental teachers will send invoices directly, and payment is to be arranged with your child’s teacher after signing up for lessons. Teachers will provide details of payment dates and methods once lessons have commenced. Lesson payment should not be paid to Archbishop’s School.

Please contact Mrs Morrison, Head of Music, if you have any further questions about instrumental/singing lessons: cmorrison@ahs.pmat.academy
