Astor is committed to developing the whole child. We believe that education goes far beyond the boundaries of classroom based learning.
Astor has a flourishing Combined Cadet Force (CCF) and Military Cadre that promotes responsibility, self-reliance, resourcefulness, endurance and self discipline in exciting and challenging ways. Our CCF and Cadre are closely associated and supported by The Duke of York's Royal Military School and enable our students to gain leadership qualifications including The Duke of Edinburgh's Award.
Our strong links with The Duke of York's Royal Military School facilitate further opportunities for extra curricular activities.
Sport and physical activity for life long health is something we are committed to promoting. We offer an all encompassing range of sporting clubs. Our students compete both nationally and internationally with particular success in Power Lifting. Our students benefit from a refurbished fitness suite and gym.
In addition we have strong international links. Foreign trips are regularly arranged. Recent trips have included visits to Turkey, Bulgaria, Estonia and Portugal.
