EMBRACE YOUR CREATIVITY

Strong emphasis is placed on pupils’ involvement in Cultural activities at EHS. We believe it teaches children to work together, it develops their leadership skills, self confidence, and their social awareness.

EHS is committed to providing the best environment and facilities possible, so that every pupil in the school is able to participate in the activity of their choice; from the ambitious and talented to those who wish to enjoy their activity on a more social level. The staff aim to encourage all pupils to participate to the best of their ability.

Please read the Extra Mural Policy carefully.
