Extra Curricular Activities

Enhancing the curriculum.

We believe in educating the whole child and offering as many opportunities as possible to learn in different environments and in different ways. Lunchtimes and after school are when many of our weekly clubs take place and as well as sports clubs and musical groups, we have clubs such as Chess, French film club, Verbal Fight Club, The LGBTQ+ Society and Miss Hodgson’s Cooking club – always popular!

Students also enjoy our distinct Enriched Curriculum programme, in addition to the fantastic extra-curricular offer at Akeley.

At Akeley Wood School, our students flourish into individuals that are full of character and potential. Exciting trips happen all year round, to ensure our young individuals are provided with ample opportunity to explore, get creative and most of all have fun! Whether it's a geography trip to France, or a historical visit to an art and archaeology museum, the range of residential trips and days out for students across the school are endless.

Senior School students enjoy residential trips within the UK and around the world, consolidating learning across a wide range of subjects. Our sports tours are extremely popular and, in the past, have included fixture-filled trips to Dubai, Holland and Spain for our budding sports enthusiasts to enjoy. Other trips have included GCSE Geography excursions to Snowdonia National Park, an action-packed adventure across the channel to be immersed in the rich history and language of France.
