Ziauddin Schools and Colleges strives to offer an all-round education that emphasises the value of participation in clubs and societies. We believe that extra-curricular opportunities help develop students’ self-confidence, organisational skills, team working and leadership skills, as well as providing stimulus for interests and hobbies for life.

Our vision is to provide an effective voice for students.
The ZS Student Council provides a ‘platform for the student voice’ as per the ZSC Mission Statement. Students are empowered to become involved in the affairs of the school and college, working in partnership with management and staff for the benefit of the organisation and its students.
The aim of the Student Council is to:
- Produce real solutions to real problems
- Give every student the opportunity to contribute through a channel comfortable for them
- Build effective relationships with staff, providing invaluable feedback and discussion
If you are interested in getting involved, and studying in Class 6 – 8 or Classes 9 – 11, you can join the Student Council as a student representative.
The Creative Writing Society offers exciting opportunities to students in Grades 6, 7, 8 who are passionate about writing. There will be the chance to share ideas, develop new styles of writing and help produce in-house publications.
This is a creative and valuable way for our students to voice their aspirations and to bridge communication with parents and teachers. Also, the School Magazine acts as an advertisement for the school, being a living, social document that transmits the culture of the school and encourages a spirit of unity among students.
Chess is the ultimate thinking-person’s game! Each new game presents a new puzzle and it will help you to develop your mental agility and problem solving skills.
This club is open to all year groups; from beginners wishing to learn the game through to those more advanced players looking to test their wits against other students and teachers. Sessions are drop-in and the aim of the club is to develop your game but mainly to have fun playing chess.
At the beginning of every half term we select a book to read – it could be a classic, a current bestseller, or something very different. Over the half term students read the book, and then meet over food and drink to discuss ideas, views and opinions of the book.

Because of our close connection with Ziauddin Medical University and Hospital, we have a ‘METHICS – the Medical Ethics discussion forum’.
METHICS is a student-led society, with the aim to engage with issues which explore medical and ethical boundaries. If you participate in this society you will have a chance to put your point of view across regarding many issues that people working in medicine, and the general population, face.
– should we use animals for testing new drugs?
– the costs of medicines: Shouldn’t medicines be free?
This is particularly useful if you are interested in applying to study medicine at university.
