The extensive co-curricular programme at Bradfield presents pupils with challenging and enjoyable activities of many kinds. Pupils are given the opportunity to develop new skills and interests in areas they might never have considered before.
A detailed list of all that is on offer is published each term including musical endeavours, such as ensembles and choirs, drama, more than thirty different sports, as well as clubs and societies where pupils can enjoy diverse pastimes such as film making or clay-pigeon shooting.
Some pupils choose to take part in the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme, with its emphasis on skills, service, physical recreation and expedition training; others seek challenges in one of the arms of the Combined Cadet Force, an organisation which aims to develop team and leadership skills through a variety of stimulating opportunities, be it skiing in Norway or canoeing in different parts of the UK.
The College’s Community Service Volunteers take on work in the local community and schools; pupils also have the opportunity to develop initiatives and skills in organising fundraising events for selected charities throughout the year. Journalistic or computing skills can be nurtured through contributing to in-house newsletters. In addition, pupils can enjoy foreign travel and adventure through organised trips, either for language learning and general cultural study, or exploration and adventure of a more physically demanding nature. Within a single year, separate groups have travelled to the Alps, Florence, Rome, Slovenia, Greece, Spain, America, France and Germany.
