Extra Curricular Activities

We offer pupils a wide range of extra-curricular enrichment opportunities across all year groups.

 

A large number of clubs run every week to ensure the interests and needs of all pupils are being met. From singing in the choir, enjoying sporting activities in P.E, or reading poetry in English, opportunities are vast for our pupils. Each night, pupils can also attend homework club where a range of resources are available to support their learning.

As well as our clubs, pupils have the opportunity to meet guest speakers, go on trips to many interesting locations and experience unique workshops. We encourage pupils to be a part of our extra-curricular offer. Not only does this demonstrate commitment, but they get to learn and develop new skills, build relationships and experience opportunities that they may not normally get to experience.

The academy has been successful across a wide range of different competitions, not just in sport, but also in other areas such as Debate Mate and STEM competitions. This represents our commitment to our extra-curricular offer and the sense of happiness, success and pride that it brings.

Every year the academy showcases its music, dance and drama clubs through various performances which the local community, primary schools and families are invited to watch!
