The extra curricular life of the school is of pivotal importance; without it, no establishment can hope to fulfil its wider educational aims. Torquay Boys’ Grammar School is particularly strong, with over 20 clubs and societies catering for a wide range of interests and ages.
The over-whelming involvement of pupils in these many different areas creates a very special ethos. From Duke of Edinburgh and Ten Tors to public speaking and Business Studies competitions these challenging societies cater for all tastes and individuals.
Often from an activity comes a lifetime of engagement and even occasionally a career. Successes in chess, astronomy and sailing have led students into national awards or long-term careers.
