Beyond the Classroom
Co-Curricular Activities (CCA)
The development of a young person’s skills and capacities in every dimension is a critical part of an education at GIS. Students are provided with a wide array of opportunities in the co-curricular programme. Each week, over 200 different activities across four specific areas — Community Service, Global Citizenship, Physical Performance and Creativity — are offered to the students. Student participation is mandatory.
We offer a very wide range of clubs and activities which take place in addition to the more traditional mainstream sporting / Music / Drama pursuits. These take place at set times after school each day.
We firmly believe that in addition to being fun for the children, this plays a vital role in developing their interpersonal/social skills and boosts their own confidence.
A wide range of co-curricular activities are available to children in all year groups, activities are published at the start of term and families can sign up to five activities per term utilising our online web-based portal.

Sport and Active
Sport plays an important role in GIS’ culture and ethos. Historically, GISKL has an outstanding overall record of achievement within KL and beyond.
While winning is important, it is our mission to get as many students as possible involved and enjoying sports through our CCA, Inter-house, Academy and Dragons programme. The School’ sport programme is fully supported by the school and pathways have been established to allow the GISKL student opportunities to participate in a sporting, healthy and active programme whatever the child’s level may be.
