Creativity, Activity and Service (CAS) enables students to enhance their personal and interpersonal development through experiential learning. At the same time, it provides an important counterbalance to the academic pressures of the rest of the Diploma Programme. A good CAS programme should be both challenging and enjoyable, a personal journey of self discovery. Each individual student has a different starting point, and therefore different goals and needs, but for many, their CAS activities include experiences that are profound and life changing.

I'm studying to be musical engineer at Blizzard records in Sevenoaks. There are indie artists, punk, rock and metal bands and I'm around when they do recording, learning how to set up the equipment, understanding frequencies to use, terminology...etc. I learn to produce (a bit like music tech and computer science) and make alterations that will actually go onto an album/EP/single.

Whilst at CERN, we visited the microcosm exhibition, attended a talk by an expert working on superconducting magnets, and learned about the level of international cooperation required from the 21 member states of CERN to operate. We also had the fantastic opportunity to see the CMS particle detector attached to the Large Hadron Collider, and to ask questions about its construction and operation. Also in the spirit of internationalism, we visited the Red Cross Museum and had a guided tour of the United Nations Office.
