Student Societies

Year 12 students at the Ursuline have the invaluable opportunity to set up, run and get involved with societies. These societies are led and organised by students for students.

These societies seek to enrich student experience and promote academic rigour whilst developing the students' leadership, organisational and teamwork skills.

Each society organises events such as debates, lectures and guest speakers. Even in lockdown the societies are busy! The Year 12 Summer Conference 2020 is being led and organised by the Year 12 society leaders and will be our first online conference.The students are very excited about it.

There are eleven Year 12 societies this year covering the following areas:
