For an independent school 云鼎app is not a place with a great deal of “public school” jargon. However unique to 云鼎app is its use of the term the “另外一半” to mean the extra-curricular side of school life. It encapsulates the notion that what a boy does in the classroom is only half of the reason he’s at the school and only half of what is going to be important to him as he matures.

云鼎app’s “另外一半” is impressive by any standards with its range of over 150 activities. Sport is, no doubt, of importance to many boys but there is a vast range of other pursuits. 对于一些, it is the excitement and comradeship of the CCF and DofE, for others it’s the cerebral challenges of chess or the thrill of playing in an orchestra. In terms of the creative arts, opportunities outside of the classroom are legion and the creative urges of nascent writers and journalists are well served by the myriad of writing opportunities. There’s an amazing range of musical and choral ensembles and a host of varied Art and DT activities. We invite you to take your time and explore the 另外一半 pages to get a taste of all that goes on here.

One really distinctive feature of life at 云鼎app is that a boy does not have to dedicate himself to one thing: he can have a variety of identities.
