Opportunities for students to 'get involved' in school life, beyond their timetabled lessons, are vast at Acklam Grange School. Consultation with our students and an array of talented staff members have resulted in a rich and diverse menu of extra curricular provision on offer.

Why get involved?

Extra curricular activities help to develop:

  • knowledge and skills
  • positive attitudes
  • social skills
  • sportsmanship
  • leadership
  • personal characteristics
  • fitness, health and well-being

and most of all...

"I enjoy getting involved in extra-curricular activities at lunchtime and after school because it's good fun and I get to talk to people I wouldn't normally talk to."

Year 9 student

Some of our highest achievers in recent years have highlighted their invovlement in extra-curricular activities at school as integral to their success:

"Revise regularly, do your homework on time and take part in extra-curricular activities. I found these to be beneficial for my school work and my personal development."
