If you would like further information regarding our Extra-Curricular or Lunchtime Activities please contact Mr Tom O’neill on 0113 468 5999.
Extra-curricular activities are an important part of the academies developing school offer, with all students encouraged to take part in the after school sporting activities on offer. As well as weekly sport clubs, a student’s school offer is enriched via curriculum related trips and visits and guest speakers attending the academy. Our KS4 students are supported with an extended careers and post 16 programme.
The academy also offers bespoke music and DJ sessions to years 7 and 8 through Noise Academy and their music education curriculum, this forms part of our core curriculum offer. Students are able to engage in music technology through Noise Academy’s innovative programmes whilst at the same time achieving accredited industry qualifications. Years 9, 10 and 11 can also access Noise Academy as part of our extended enrichment offer. Students interested in accessing Noise Academy should speak with Mr Woodhead or Joe Townsley.
Enrichment Clubs 2019/20
As part of our student voice, the academy will be asking all students how they would like to shape our extra-curricular offer for September 2019/20. Throughout the week the PE team will deliver enrichment clubs focusing on volleyball, football, table tennis, and fitness/rowing. Karate will also be delivered by trained karate experts to any student wanting to try their hand at something new and possibly become part of the Gorse karate club.
Students showing a strong commitment to the rowing club will be rewarded with receiving access to the Gorse boathouse during the school day and learning to row on the water. Every enrichment session attended will earn students a ‘health stamp’ and students achieving 6 or more health stamps will be rewarded with an end of half term enrichment opportunity.
