Student Clubs

1st Year Art Club

Calling all creatives! The 1st Year Art Club is new in the school and facilitated by Ms. Toner. It’s specifically for 1st year students and welcomes all students regardless of if they do Art or not. It may even tempt students to take Art up in 2nd year! It takes place one day a week, from 4.00pm – 5.00pm. ACS Art Club is a relaxed environment that encourages investigation of different media and encourages collaborative creativity. Students have the freedom to bring in their own artwork to share among their peers or to take part in guided art activities. Throughout the year, we cover a variety of art activities – explorative drawing techniques, painting, collage, pop art self-portraits and photography to name a few! Students will also work together on a creative project that supports school initiatives. For example, in 2021 the ACS Art Club designed and decorated the corridors of the school with custom artwork to support ‘Autism Awareness Week’.


Chess Club

Our new chess club gives students a chance to learn new skills and meet new people. A game that can be played by all students, regardless of age, chess gives the students the chance to develop their skills in strategic planning, concentration and forward thinking. Chess is a sociable activity that helps to bring children together and break down barriers, whilst at the same time encouraging a healthy sense of competitiveness.

Coding Club

Dance Club
