Enrichment and Wider Learning

Life at Christ the King College is not just about academic achievement. It is also a time to discover or develop your interests, aptitudes and talents, make new friends and have fun. Whether your interests are in Drama, Media, Business, Dance, Music or Photography, for example, you will have many chances to get involved.

At Christ the King you will find that the more you give of your talents and skills, the more you will gain; the more you become involved in College life, the more you will enjoy your time with us. You can be elected onto the Student Council or the College’s Governing Body. The Student Council runs a number of events including social and charity fundraising events, the Leavers’ Prom, and the Talent Showcase. Our students have performed at national events and taken part in a wide range of competitions and galas.
