Space is made in the regular weekly curriculum for activities and clubs to flourish on a Wednesday afternoon. A set programme of events in the first year introduces new Tonbridgians to the wealth of opportunities that exist in the school. Older boys opt for activities which cater for all tastes.

In their second year boys may choose to join the Royal Navy, Army or RAF sections of the Combined Cadet Force (CCF), or an outward bound activity known as 'New Terriers'. If they are Art or Music Award holders they may instead concentrate on Art or Music.

In the Sixth Form many boys continue with the CCF and become leaders and mentors to the younger recruits. Others may show their commitment to service through the strong Tonbridge Community Action group (TCA) or our Conservation unit, which includes beekeeping, looking after the school orchards, hedge laying or rearing the school pigs, among other 'green' initiatives.

Other activities include: Life Drawing, Music, Debating, Formula 1 Design, Upcycling, The Tonbridgian (school magazine), Film Studies, Investors Club, Archives, Model United Nations, Rackets, Tennis, Game Design, Cookery, History of Art, Hoghead Theatre productions, Technical Theatre, Film Production, Bridge, and Chess. Almost all of the activities listed above can be used for a component of The Duke of Edinburgh's Award.
