Extra-Curricular Activities

Extra-curricular activities are positive experiences that contribute to the wellbeing and happiness of children. Studying is an important part of our children’s lives, but extracurricular activities make their personalities stronger by giving them an opportunity to develop additional skills and interests.

  • Taekwando

  • Coding

  • Media and Digital Classes

  • Media club

  • School Sports Day

  • Science Days

  • School Picnics

  • Educational Visits


  • Taekwondo is a discipline that teaches ways of enhancing spirit and life through training our body and mind. It is one of the most systematic and scientific Korean traditional martial arts, using mainly hands and fists.


  • If we want to set our children up for academic success, every child should learn to code. Coding not only helps improve creativity, confidence, mathematics and writing skills but also gives valuable lifeskills which can be carried into Higher education and eventually the workforce.
    Coding is a form of basic literacy in the digital age, and it isimportant for children to understand and be able to work with the technology around them.
    At the Dr Abdul Qadeer Khan’s School we intend to offer this in every class and also as an extra-curricular activity for those who are most keen.

Media and Digital Classes

We all know that we’re living through a time of great change, and that the use of digital technology is an ever-increasing part of everything we do, as we move more and more online – and that includes media.

Media is constantly changing and children’s engagement with it developing at an incredible rate. In this digital era, media has taken on a broader meaning. Increasingly it is where children socialise, and how they experience the wider world.

In the years ahead it will be something we haven’t even heard of yet – so it is vital that on all of this we continue to look forward and prepare for the next innovation.

As educators this is a challenge for us to realise and incorporate into our curriculum and education. It is important that the Dr Abdul Qadeer Khan’s Schoolnurtures students’ ability and confidence to excel both online and offline in a world where digital media is omnipresent. We can measure, and develop each child’s digital intelligence into three areas:

Level 1: Digital citizenship

The ability to use digital technology and media in a safe, responsible and effective manner.

Level 2: Digital creativity

The ability to become a part of the digital ecosystem by co-creating new content and turning ideas into reality by using digital tools.

Level 3: Digital entrepreneurship

The ability to use digital media and technologies to solve global challenges or to create new opportunities.

Media club

  • This club gives an opportunity for students to develop skills and be more aware of social media and how to use it. Looking at you tube, podcasts, radio, social media, memes, Instagram, Facebook and the list is endless. The club will consider how to edit videos and create voiceovers, develop memes, humour and personal and social responsibility for material that is created.

School Sports Day


  • This is an opportunity for every child at the school to develop their physical ability, whilst being competitive, having fun and collecting awards.

Science Days

Science is a part of our daily life. Everything we do and deal with in life is science from cooking, playing ball, growing a garden and understanding how technologies work to watching a rain storm. Understanding science helps kids appreciate and relate to the world around them.

Science education teaches children more than just the basics of geology, biology, physics and chemistry. Science teaches children to make observations, collect information and to use logical thinking to draw a conclusion. These skills are important for every part of our lives.

Scientists are an important part of the future of our world. Without them we would not be able to predict the weather or earthquakes, understand global warming, cure illnesses and take care of the sick, or have many of the products that enhance our lifestyles today.

At the Dr Abdul Qadeer Khan’s School we work on ensuring our students have an appreciation, respect and love for Science from a very young age. This will give them confidence to pursue careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.

School Picnics

The whole school likes to get together and go on picnics, this helps to bring the school community together and participate in fun activities for the children who work very hard academically.

Educational Visits

School trips offer a huge range of benefits for students, not all of them academic. A school trip can be a truly formative experience in terms of their personal and social development too. Often there are many interesting places to visit which benefit learning and open our children’s mind to the history, culture and social aspects as well as reinforcing classroom learning but many children do not get an opportunity to go.
