Our drama club is a well-loved part of the school’s extracurricular offering. We are a LAMDA-certified centre (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art) and have been preparing students for the LAMDA exams for over 10 years. LAMDA is the UK’s largest Speech and Drama board and their graded exams offer a nationally recognised qualification in communication and performance. For those preparing for university it is an especially beneficial activity as UCAS points are awarded for earning LAMDA qualifications. Along with preparing for the exams we make sure the drama club is fun and enriching for all, and put on regular drama performances for parents and students to attend.
We have partnered with Learnissimo, one of Europe’s leading providers of online foreign language learning, to offer extracurricular conversation lessons for students aged 10 to 18.
Learnissimo lessons take place at home. Children log on via computer or tablet for a 1:1 lesson in their chosen language. Lessons are personalised and adapted to your child’s level and learning goals. Learnissimo courses are available in French, English, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Mandarin, and more. All Learnissimo teachers are native language speakers and certified to teach online.
To help parents manage work and home life we offer an extended hours service every day. The service is provided by Ultra to help students take part in fun and educational activities as well as receiving homework support.
In addition to our regular programme of extracurricular activities, at Mougins School we also organise and attend special events throughout the year in support of charities such as Red Nose Day, which raises money for brilliant causes in the UK and around the world, and our Harvest Festival where we celebrate harvest time with fancy dress and by supporting a local charity with food donations.
Public speaking is an important skill for young people, which can build confidence and prepare them for the workplace. Taking part in an international competition in public speaking is a memorable experience and a great way to improve this skill.
World Book Day is an international day of celebration of the love of reading. On this day in March, students can dress up as their favourite character from any story book or novel, and bring their favourite book into school to share with their peers. The book fair is a fantastic way to promote a love of books and shared reading, and is one of the most highly anticipated days in the school calendar!
As a Globeducate school, we are able to offer our students some fantastic international experiences and exchanges with other Globeducate schools. The group organises a number of annual events with participating schools joining from around the world.
