Research has shown that children who take part in activities outside school lessons – or extra-curricular activities – make better progress and improve their attendance and attitude to both school and learning.
Enhancing their future
Extra-curricular activities help students gain experience in a variety of areas that will enhance their future. Through participation in sports, students learn co-operation, teamwork and time management. By taking on a leadership role in a club or group, students learn responsibility, problem-solving and communication. Extra-curricular activities can also help students discover hidden talents, meet people they might otherwise not encounter, and learn about things outside their own environment.
Enrichment activities at Stockley Academy include the Duke of Edinburgh Award, Art Club, Sports Clubs, Competitions, School Council, Debate Mate, Book Club and Film Club. You can find out more about our enrichment activities in the extra curricular section of the website.
