Extra-murals:

Extra-murals at Beaconhurst are intended to be educational and recreational. No special emphasis is placed on any particular activity.  Learners are given the opportunity to participate in as wide a range of activities as possible. To provide opportunities for all our learners, to ensure the safety of our learners and in keeping with our sport philosophy, learners may only play in their own age group. The activities are conducted under the supervision of full-time academic staff members.  External coaches are employed for certain sporting codes.  The majority of these activities are free of charge.  Where activities are after the allotted extra-mural time, a fee may be charged, for example, Art Club
