School Activities
School life consists of more than the taught curriculum and at Craigavon Senior High School we place a very strong emphasis on the value of extra-curricular activities in developing social skills, self-esteem and the ability to work as part of a team. Examples of the range of activities on offer include the following.

A wide variety of sports and leisure activities are available:

. Crossfit

In addition pupils have the opportunity to participate in after school clubs. These include:

Art Club
Computer Club
Drama Society

French Club
Maths Club

Science Club
Technology Club
Scripture Union

These lists vary from time to time, please check with staff if you have a query about a particular extra-curricular activity or club.

School Trips

Pupils are provided with a variety of opportunities for school trips, both local and international. Recent trips have included the annual ski trip and a visit to the battlefields of the Somme.

Duke of Edinburgh

Pupils have the opportunity to undertake the Bronze Level Duke of Edinburgh Award. The award has four sections; Volunteering, Physical, Skills and Expedition. Participants must do a minimum of 3 months activity for each of the first three sections and plan, train for and do a 2 day (1 night) expedition.

Charitable Activities

We encourage our pupils to become involved in a variety of charitable ventures. Such involvement develops the values of sharing and respect for others and encourages social responsibility and a sense of citizenship.

Cross Community Activities

The school recognises its responsibility towards helping to heal community division and welcomes opportunities for involvement in cross community activities.


The school choir comes together to support special events such as Prize Day. The Christmas season also offers opportunities for the choir to contribute to the life of the school.

Christian Union/Scripture Union

The school has thriving Christian Union/Scripture Union groups on both campuses that meet on a weekly basis, often with guest speakers supporting the programmes. The groups also enjoy various outings including residetial weekends.

Subject Support Groups

Subject Support Groups are a feature of life at Craigavon Senior High School. Pupils who feel that they would benefit from additional teacher support can avail of these clubs after school.
