Clubs & societies

Expand your interests and connect with others. Being part of our college community isn’t just about learning new knowledge and skills. It’s also about reaching out to like minded people to enjoy a stimulating social and intellectual experience. That’s why we run a variety of clubs and societies to help you engage with people, interests and issues you care about.

Our English Department is passionate about extending the joys of English to the widest possible group. As a member you can participate in competitions, listen to visiting speakers and enjoy live streams of Royal Shakespeare Company productions.

Our Combined Cadet Force (CCF) is so successful that we extend this exciting programme to all of our students, no matter what they are studying.

Adventurous activities include:

  • Fieldcraft
  • Expedition training
  • Shooting
  • Sports

As a cadet, you will improve your general fitness and wellbeing, as well as build strong friendships. You will also be given the opportunity to work towards the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and gain nationally-recognised qualifications in first aid, leadership, management and outdoor pursuits.

If you want to participate in lively discussions on contemporary issues, then The Debating Society presents the ideal opportunity.

Develop work-ready skills and build your CV with the Duke of Edinburgh Award. Working towards your Bronze, Silver or Gold Award is a chance to get involved in voluntary work, be part of a team and help develop your organisational skills – all excellent preparation for university and beyond.

This group meets regularly to discuss issues such as sexuality, gender identity, gender equality and inequality, enabling you to explore this central theme in society.

Evolve is a student-led enterprise society. With support from lecturers, students organise inspirational events and networking opportunities for their peers. Past events have included a motivational talk, Dragon’s Den workshops, and a trip to the Sky Academy Careers Lab in London. Evolve is ideal for any student wanting to explore their ideas, or make business connections with people inside and outside of the college.

You can join our Geography Society for weekly meetings where you will discover more about prominent issues and discuss them in detail.

Like The Debating Society, The Politics Society invites you to discover more about contemporary issues and become involved in the cut-and-thrust of debate.

If you are a practising Christian, and also if you’re not, this club welcomes you to come and share your thoughts on religious and moral issues.
