Why is extended curriculum so important at Halewood Academy?
This gives students a chance to develop their social skills, meet new friends and become more confident communicating in groups. Extended curricular activities can also aid in the development of self-esteem and confidence. In addition to building skills within a specific discipline, extracurricular activities are great for developing general academic and soft skills. Think debating for public speaking, academic competitions for exam strategies and sport for teamwork.
Balancing a number of commitments can help to improve your child’s time management skills, while finding an area they enjoy or excel at. It is gratifying when we succeed in something we enjoy, especially after working hard to achieve it. Please view the clip below for a sample of what to expect.
We have a wide variety of after school clubs that we hope will appeal to all students’ interests and talents.
We believe that the learning journey through school is not just about securing educational qualifications and we value the whole experience that our students receive here and understand that time spent developing extra-curricular interests is pivotal to ensuring our youngsters leave us as well-rounded citizens; well qualified, happy and healthy.
We have an extensive extra-curricular programme for students to be involved in after school. That said, we are always open to new ideas. If students feel that there is something that we do not offer that they would really like to try, then we will do our very best to facilitate it.
