Clubs and Extra-Curricular Activities
Getting involved in sports clubs, societies, volunteering and competitions is a great way to meet new people, enjoy your time at school and ensure you strike a healthy balance between school work and your free time.
At Haverfordwest High VC School we offer a range of activities which cover everything from arts and crafts, drama, gaming, STEM, languages, debating, religious and cultural groups, and sports clubs.
Whether you aim to continue with a hobby you've been enjoying for a few years or try something completely new, you're almost certain to find a club or society that suits.
By taking part you'll build friendships and connections with new pupils, meet people from different backgrounds, and gain transferable skills such as communication, teamwork, organisation, problem solving and time management. It will also improve your confidence. Taking part in a wide range of extra-curricular activities will also look good on your CV or UCAS application – so get involved!
As well as the opportunities to take part in a wealth of activities during the school day, we are also busy offering a range of extra-curricular activities after school too.
If you love working in teams and discovering new limits for yourself, then the Duke of Edinburgh award might be for you. This is held twice a week after school, for students 14 years old and over. The Bronze Award will be on Mondays, and the Silver and Gold Awards will be held on Tuesdays at Pembrokeshire College. Please visit the Duke of Edinburgh page for more information.

Opportunities with the Rotary Club
As well as these clubs, HHVCS also offers a wide range of competitions to take part in.
We are proud to be working with the Rotary to offer our young people to develop their skills and showcase their talents. Look out for the exciting opportunities to be a part of the Interact Club which allows you to make a real difference while having fun. Every Interact club carries out two service projects a year: one that helps their school or community and one that promotes international understanding. The club will meet at least twice a month and is sponsored by the local Rotary Club of Haverfordwest.
Other Rotary opportunities will be in the form of competitions such as:
- Youth Speaks
- Young Chef
- Young Photographer
- Young Musician
- Young Writer
… there is even an opportunity for first language Welsh speakers (and confident Welsh learners) to participate in the Young Writer competition bilingually – syniad gwych!
Sixth form students should be on the lookout for information regarding RYLA – the Rotary Young Leader Award – and the Youth Exchange programme where the successful applicants can learn a new language, discover another culture, and truly become global citizens.
