The Extra Curriculum

Students are invited to take part in a range of activities outside of lesson time to further enhance their educational experience.
Students may complete homework and independent study in our Great Learning Zone and Learning Resource Centre (LRC) before school and after school, at break and at lunch times. Students have access to extensive ICT facilities both in and beyond the classroom. Students are also welcome to remain in the Academy at the end of the school day to attend Homework Club; during this time teachers are on hand should assistance be required.
