Extra-curricular activities

At The Hurst we encourage our students to try new things and offer a wide variety of extra-curricular opportunities. These allow students to have new experiences, build new skills, and let their individuality shine through.  

Activities on offer include Sports (such as Badminton, Basketball, Netball,  Football and Rugby), Music and Theatre (including Orchestra, Dance and Drama). We also cater for skills and interests as diverse as STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) to Warhammer, Creative Writing, Book Club and Yoga.   Activities change each term.

We also offer our Year 9 students the opportunity to work for their  Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award. To read more, please click here.

After school mini bus service

We run an after-school mini bus service from Monday-Thursday which leaves school at 4:25pm at the end of the club sessions. The drop-off points are Huntsmoor Road, Gutteridge Lane, Tadley swimming pool, Mulfords Hill,  The Pelican pub in Pamber Heath, The Calleva Arms in Silchester, Little London, Bramley, Sherfield on Loddon, Sherborne St John and Sherfield Park. The cost is £2 for students in years 7-10 and free for year 11 students attending GCSE revision classes. 

To book a place, students need to go to Reception before tutor time on the day they require the bus. This services operates on a first-come, first-served basis.
