On a weekly basis over seventy clubs and teams deliver unrivalled opportunities to our students. From sport to music and from performing arts to railway engineering there is something on offer for every child. Not surprisingly our students and teams have an outstanding record of success at local, county and national levels in cross-country, swimming, football, basketball, tennis, athletics, volleyball, netball and golf.

Budmouth has one of the most advanced outdoor education programmes of any school in the United Kingdom. We are committed to the full development of all our students and

we know that Budmouth is a model of excellence in this field. Annually the college fields over forty residential adventurous trips within the United Kingdom involving some one thousand students.


Budmouth is one of only fifty state schools in the UK with a Combined Cadet Force. Cadets participate in annual summer camps and have the opportunity to attend over fifty courses annually, which cover everything from power boating to parachuting.

Every year our students join major expeditions to the developing world. Over a period of a month they will mountaineer, trek, white water raft, mountain bike and jungle train as well as undertaking a community project. Past venues have included India, Ecuador, China and Kenya, where our students have built and now support a health centre.

The benefits of these opportunities to young people include developing self-confidence and independence; gaining a sense of achievement and responsibility; discovering new skills and developing powers of leadership.

“ Regular involvement by all pupils in outdoor adventure lessons and a vast number of residential trips greatly enhances leadership qualities, teamwork and self-esteem.”
