Beyond the Classroom – School Life

We believe that the school years offer an opportunity for each student to explore and develop their talents and interests. In addition to providing opportunities for students to excel in their studies, at Tyndall College we also encourage all our students to participate in a wide range of extra-curricular activities, groups and events. These provide excellent, supervised opportunities for recreation, and also opportunities to develop team-working, problem-solving and communication skills, whilst furthering friendships and having fun!

Tyndall College responds to the student experience of the school, and the Student Council is a central part of school life. Each year groups is represented on the Student Council, and the council is responsible for a range of activities throughout the year.
