The Activities and Enrichment Programme at Xaverian College is completely optional: you choose what to do and when you want to do it.

We do believe in creating a balance between studying for your qualifications and doing something that you find personally rewarding. Universities and employers will want to know about you so choose something that you have a passion for, where you will have fun, meet students with similar interests and find out what kind of person you are or perhaps just try something new. Above all it’s about our students and enjoying what they do, trying your best and make the most of your experience here at Xaverian College.

We have two sides to our sports programme, our enrichment activities are designed for all students of all abilities, and the sports teams which require students to attend trials and regular training sessions.
