Wider Achievement recognises the life and work skills that are gained from taking part in activities outside of the classroom. These achievements can come from learning within the school, home and wider community and can cover a wide variety of activities ranging from hobbies, volunteering to recognised award programmes.
This helps develop skills for learning, life and work and can be invaluable for our young people as they grow up.
See the St Luke’s High School Wider Achievement Catalogue for clubs and opportunities for our young people.
