Clubs and Activities

At Bodmin College we believe that learning does not just happen in the classroom. We take learning beyond the classroom by offering a range of enrichment activities to suit all ages, abilities and interests. We encourage all our students to take part in clubs, trips and projects because not only are these activities important for making friends and developing a wide range of transferable skills, they are also vital for university applications and CV’s. Simply passing examinations may not be enough to land that dream university place or long wished for job, so providing extra-curricular experiences to students will really help them stand out from the crowd.
