Extra Curricular


There is much more to life than just studying at Alde Valley Academy, so we make sure our curriculum is supported with a high quality and varied enrichment and extra-curricular programme. These activities provide opportunities for students to participate in clubs, trips and events which broaden and enrich learning.

Students are encouraged to take part in local and national subject-based competitions, team building and leadership enhancing activities, including Student Ambassadors, School Council and sports activities. We also encourage involvement in special university events such as biotech and robotics. 

There is a long-standing culture of sport enriching activities such as team games, badminton, table tennis, trampolining, swimming and the use of our own fitness suite, which can be accessed through after school clubs with PE staff and external coaches. We also participate in a range of sporting competitions and fixtures against other schools, both locally and regionally. We believe that the promotion of a healthy lifestyle is fundamental to the wellbeing of all.

Examples of extra-curricular activities:

These are in addition to the multiple inter-school activities that regularly occur throughout the year, including Inter-House competitions and charity events.
