Extra Curricular Activities
We offer pupils a wide range of extra-curricular enrichment opportunities across all year groups.
A vast number of clubs run every week and ensure the interests and needs of all pupils across all areas of the curriculum whether this be singing in the choir, enjoying a sporting activity in PE or reading poetry in English. Each night, pupils can also attend homework club where a range of resources are available to support learning.
Our extra-curricular clubs run both before school, at lunchtime and after school and a timetable of the clubs that are running can be seen below. In addition to the many clubs, pupils also have many opportunities to experience visits from guest speakers and other companies, go on a range of trips to a variety of different locations and to also experience workshops which enhance their experiences.
We believe that it is important for our pupils to be a part of the extra-curricular offer. Not only does this demonstrate commitment, but pupils also get to learn and develop new skills, build relationships with other pupils and staff and experience situations and opportunities that they may not normally get to experience.
The academy has been successful across a wide range of different competitions, not just limited to sport, but also in other areas such as debate mate and STEM competitions. These represent the high level of commitment shown by our staff and pupils to the extra-curricular offer and the sense of happiness, success and pride that being a part of this can bring. Each year, the academy also showcases its music, dance and drama clubs through a number of different performances which the local community, primary schools and families are invited to watch.
