INVOLVE and ACHIEVE
The academy operates a wide-ranging after school extra-curricular (INVOLVE) and academic support (ACHIEVE) programme. The INVOLVE programme encompasses a wide range of activities ranging from sports and drama to our debating society and cookery. All students are encouraged to take part in at least one activity per week.
ACHIEVE provides targeted academic support and takes place each night of the week. Students of all abilities are identified and supported to make progress in their learning. The aim is to ensure that students meet their full potential and the programme provides the opportunity for more focussed, small group intervention and support.
