Talents and Interests

At Carleton Park, we recognise the unique talents and interests of each pupil and provide exceptional opportunities for their development. Our diverse range of extracurricular activities and clubs allows pupils to explore their passions, whether in sports, arts, music, STEM, or other areas. We offer expert guidance and support to help pupils cultivate their skills and pursue their passions to the fullest.


World of Work

Preparing pupils for the challenges and opportunities of the professional world is a priority at Carleton Park. We offer valuable experiences and resources to help pupils develop a clear understanding of different career paths and the skills required to succeed. Through career workshops, industry visits, guest speakers, and internships, we connect pupils with professionals, providing them with real-world insights and guidance to make informed choices about their future.


Trips, Visits, and Exposure to the Wider World

Carleton Park believes in broadening horizons and exposing pupils to diverse cultures, environments, and experiences. We organise a range of educational trips and visits that extend beyond the classroom, allowing pupils to discover new perspectives, develop empathy, and build a global mindset. These experiences include local and international trips, cultural exchanges, and partnerships with organisations that foster an appreciation for the wider world.


Activities, Clubs, and Co-curricular

Our comprehensive range of activities, clubs, and co-curricular offerings forms an integral part of our personal development program. Pupils can choose from a wide variety of clubs, such as debate, drama, community service, coding, and more. These activities provide opportunities for pupils to develop leadership skills, teamwork, creativity, and a sense of responsibility, while also fostering a strong sense of community and belonging.



Carleton Park integrates personal development into the curriculum, ensuring that every subject area contributes to the holistic growth of our pupils. Our curriculum is designed to foster critical thinking, communication skills, problem-solving abilities, and ethical awareness. Through project-based learning, interdisciplinary studies, and values-based education, we empower pupils to become lifelong learners who are prepared to navigate an ever-changing world.
