Extra-curricular Activities

The extra-curricular provision at Bowdon Prep is extremely broad and varied, with a wide range of activities and clubs that take place before school, at lunchtime and after school. They are run by our own Bowdon Prep staff and outside experts. The challenging and exciting activities support the curriculum in ways that make our children happy to learn, while enabling them to make the most of their abilities. Girls from local grammar schools, including some past pupils, occasionally assist with clubs and activities.
