Extra-Curricular Clubs, Visits & Residential

EXTRA CURRICULAR CLUBS, VISITS & RESIDENTIALS

We offer a range of after school clubs which are open to all pupils through our GASP programme. Peripatetic music lessons are extremely popular with currently 180 pupils learning a broad range of instruments. The Academy has produced some fantastic whole school musical events, with opportunities for pupils to be involved in a wide variety of roles from acting, to lighting, to costume and set design or musical performance. We have a number of successful sports teams from across the key stages who both train and compete regularly. All pupils are encouraged to participate in an extra curricular activity through Our Core Values. Science club is particularly popular on Fridays after school.

We offer a diverse range of educational trips and visits to places such as Kinnerton chocolate factory, Leeds University, Temple Newsome, Theatre Royal in York, Hornsea, EIS Sheffield as well as rewards trips to venues chosen by the pupils (Alton Towers, Xscape, Light Water Valley). We have a variety of residential opportunities for pupils in places like Cranedale, Paris, Belgium and Salamanca. Pupils in year 9 upwards have the opportunity to take part in the Duke of Edinburgh scheme which involves practical expeditions facilitated by a dedicated staff team. We regularly run an extremely popular ski trip to Vermont with a stopover in New York.

The Academy was awarded The International Award in 2018 in recognition of our strong international links. We have worked in partnership with Mzuvele High School for a number of years, which has allowed opportunities for both pupils and staff from both schools to visit and share experiences.

Welcome to GASP!       

Garforth After School Programme

GASP! comprises extra-curricular activities delivered by all departments and is the Academy’s integrated after school programme. It has been developed in response to parents who asked to be able to find all our after school activities in one place.

The majority of activities are free, but for some there is a charge, which we have kept to a minimum, to cover specialist staff and resources.

We have also included our Arts Live classes. If you would like more information regarding Arts Live, please visit Arts-Live.co.uk
