Extra Curricular Activities

Opportunities exist before, during and after school to support work in the classroom. The library is open from 8.00 in the morning and after school. This gives students access to computer facilities as well as other learning resources.  Students are also encouraged to use the restaurant area for private study, where breakfast is available from 7:45am and students can access hot drinks and food all day.

On an average week Quarrydale Academy offers a wide variety of different clubs for students to take part in. This offer encompasses all manner of different opportunities from study sessions and GCSE revision and sporting activities to Cartoon Club, Technology Club, F1 Club and Brilliant Club

Students who take Woodwind, Brass and Violin lessons will be loaned an instrument by the school at no extra charge.
Lessons are 20 minutes and take place during the school day and time rotate each week to ensure students don’t miss the same class lesson each time.
Taking instrument lessons builds students’ resilience, organisational skills, communication skills, independence and creativity and teamwork.
