The importance of extra-curricular activities at EIC

The importance of extra-curricular activities at EIC

At Ealing Independent College we believe that clubs and activities are a great way for our students to not only enhance their skills doing something they love, but also an opportunity for the students to come together outside of the classroom as an EIC community. We have worked hard, both staff and students, to implement clubs and sociaties that we can all get involved in.
