Extra-curricular activities

We offer a range of extra-curricular activities and opportunities encompassing a wide variety of interests. We encourage students to join at least one club during their time at Oathall. For most activities, unless specified, students can join at any point throughout the year.

We try to make sure the information in this section is current. Some clubs especially PE clubs change during the year. If you can’t find details of an activity here please check the weekly Student Bulletin for the most up-to-date information.

Love Music specialise in teaching singing, guitar, bass and piano both individually and in small groups. Love Music teachers are passionate and creative musicians and teachers who share the best of their knowledge in a way that is interesting, inspiring and above all, makes sense.  Whether students are learning ‘just for fun’ or working towards a particular goal (such as grades or audition pieces), our tutors take care to listen to students and work out what they are aiming for – helping them achieve their musical goals whatever they may be. Lessons are competitively priced and offered individually or in small groups. All students are offered one free trial lesson to see how they get on – we even provide resources to get them started!
