Lindfield Co-Curricular

Lindfield's range of Co-curricular activities add a diversity and richness to the academic program at the school.

Co-curricular Options

At Lindfield Prep, we offer a range of co-curricular activities. We encourage our boys to be involved in as many activities as possible. It is our aim for each boy to wring every ounce of opportunity out of their time at Lindfield Prep both inside and outside the classroom. 

For many children their morning starts very early with music rehearsals in one of our many ensemble groups. There are sporting, art, music and drama opportunities as part of the school day. After school activities, which are available to all boys, offer clubs such as Robotics, Art, Theatresports, Drama, Debating, Chess and Sports. 

Our boys are encouraged to try new and varied activities. It is the many opportunities that boys may find activities that may develop into lifelong passions. Taking part in a variety of activities allows students to stretch their boundaries, take risks and ultimately discover what is possible
