Enrichment & Lux | Streatham & Clapham High School

‘Lux’- a Latin term meaning ‘light’

‘Lux’ is the name of our service programme in the Sixth Form. Just as the lamp on our school crest brings light to all, we want our girls to share their light with our local community.

Our girls have skills, talents and ability to make a positive impact on the world around them, whether it is by volunteering, leading activities or activism on important issues. ‘Lux’ encourages our girls to be courageous and ‘fearless’ as they seek to make our world a better place.

CCF


The CCF offers numerous opportunities and adventurous activities to develop leadership skills, resilience, teamwork and have a lot of fun. The CCF provides you with new skills and experiences from learning to sail to sleeping on a ‘Type 82 Destroyer’. The Combined Cadet Force (Royal Navy) is run in partnership with La Retraite School. We take a minibus to La Retraite and you will be dismissed from La Retraite at 4.15pm. New and returning cadets are welcome. Further details see: SLt Reader

Community


This activity is for anyone interested in our local community. Based on your interests, come up with an activity to engage with the local community. If you are interested in history, start an oral history project with older people; if you are interested in nature, set up a conservation project; if you like drama, produce an inter-generational performance; or if you are interested in medicine, begin a care-home visiting scheme. The choice is yours!
