What happens after school?

TLG operates a range of extended school programmes where students can continue to engage and learn beyond the school day and during the holidays. These might include breakfast clubs and workshops in sports, media, arts and music. TLG also runs social and cultural trips and visits including weekend residentials within the UK and international trips which in the past have included Uganda and Ghana. 

Staff at the school can tell you what is happening and when.
