A leading North Yorkshire school has recently received national recognition for their Extra-Curricular provision.

Cundall Manor School, which is based near Topcliffe, has been shortlisted for a prestigious national Independent Schools Association award. The school, which last year was nominated for an ISA Award for Excellence and Innovation in Provision and the ISA Award for Outstanding Achievement in Sport, will this year contest the ISA Award for Excellence in Extra-Curricular Activities.

“We are proud of educating the whole person,” says Joint Head at Cundall Manor School, Amanda Kirby.

Speaking about the importance of extra-curricular study at schools, she added: “This is something we know is important to our parents and our pupils. We are committed to providing a robust and entertaining extra-curricular programme which allows our pupils to thrive beyond the classroom as well as inside it.”

The school has seen some quirky extra-curricular activities over the past few years with the annual go-kart race, trebuchet challenge and conker competition complementing the more regular activities such as Cubs and Beavers. With over 80 enrichment activities available across the year, it is easy to see why Cundall has such a great reputation for its extra-curricular provision.

Amanda adds: “The school ethos is to develop a well-rounded individual. Challenging our pupils to try something new and encouraging them to roll their sleeves up and give it a go is certainly part of being a Cundall pupil.”

The winner of the award will be announced in November later this year. To find out more about Cundall Manor School or to book your place at the upcoming Open Morning on Saturday 14 October,
