Activities and societies

Our School offers many opportunities to get involved and explore your interests outside of your studies. You can meet students from courses across our School through the English Society, which runs regular socials, careers events, sporting fixtures, and trips to places both in the UK and abroad.

Playhouse Lab

The Playhouse Lab is a playreading group based in our School which stages unrehearsed, improvised, script-in-hand performances of plays from the English Renaissance. The sessions are informal and welcoming, and no acting experience is needed.

The Alison Morland Poetry Prize presents a great opportunity for aspiring creative writers. Shortlisted entries receive feedback from established professional poets, while the winner receives a cash prize and publication in our prestigious magazine Poetry and Audience.
