School is about more than just academic success. The Harvey offers a wide range of extra-curricular activities to engage its pupils.
Music & Drama
Pupils can join forces to develop their musical skills by learning an instrument or joining one of our popular drama productions.
Other popular groups include the Harvey Singers, Barbershop, Orchestra, Big Band and Samba Band – all of whom meet and rehearse during lunchtimes.
The Harvey enjoys considerable success in local, county and national sport – regularly reaching county cup finals, especially in cricket and football.
In addition to football, hockey and cricket, the Harvey participates in athletics, basketball, cross-country, golf, rugby, skiing, swimming and tennis competitions, and offers pupils the opportunity to be involved in badminton, fitness training and gymnastics.
The Harvey has a long tradition of organising day-trips and residential visits for pupils. Over the last 30 years, staff and pupils have enjoyed The Harvey’s annual ski trips across Europe and the USA.
More recently, there have been biennial football tours to the eastern seaboard of the United States, cricket tours to the Caribbean, hockey and basketball tours throughout the UK and Spain.
In recent years, the Harvey has participated in expeditions to Vietnam, Nepal, Chile, Mongolia, Namibia and Tanzania via True Adventure.
Pupils have also enjoyed getting to know their foreign counterparts in language and cultural visits to Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Russia and Eastern Europe.
