Peebles High School places a very strong emphasis on the value of extra-curricular activities as a means of enriching the education of its pupils, particularly in developing social skills, self esteem, initiative and the ability to work as part of a team. In Peebles High School there are many opportunities for pupils to be involved in activities out with the timetabled school day. These may occur at lunchtime, at the end of the school day, or they may involve day visits or residential visits ranging from local to international scales. All extra curricular activities are provided by staff on a voluntary basis.

The following activities are an example of what is or has recently been on offer to our pupils:
