Tennis – Tennis – A local club has been started up at DSTC and this club is a feeder to the evening club. Pupils can come along to try and improve their tennis skills, socialise or try and be more competitive.

Gymnastics – The local club coach set up their specialised equipment and teach the range of skills such as vaulting, handstands, tumbling and cartwheels. They provide a link to their club based at DSTC in the evenings.

Dance – A variety of dance classes are run after school, Gifted and talented KS3 dance club, for students who are talented in dance and wish to perform in the school showcase. Cascade dance company, where we offer contemporary dance and performance club to our BTEC GCSE dance students, and finally Glee club challenge, where our students were successful this year in reaching the regional finals 2016 and are soon to audition for the 2017 Glee club challenge.

Rounders: Pupils are split into lower and upper school groups for training but often mix for some games to practice their skills and improve on game play. Tactics, skills and officiating all covered in the club in a relaxed setting on the field. Matches are played some Mondays and Tuesdays on our field. We have 3 rounders pitches marked out around the field so lots of space to practice.

Athletics: Runs, jumps and throws practiced to improve techniques and get pupils ready for competitions such as sports day, district athletics or just for fun. We cover hurdles, sprints and middle distance in the track events. Long jump and high jump for the jumps and shot, discus and javelin for the throwing events. We have a 200m track and use the astro to practice sprinting 90m.
