Extra Curricular at Turton


We believe extra-curricular activities play a very important role in school life and many students through their work in this area gain in confidence and self-esteem. Students learn new skills and refine old ones. This aspect of school life helps to create a sense of belonging and pride in the school – it’s also great fun!
