Clubs & Societies
There are several extra-curricular sports clubs that are offered throughout the year, these include: Football, Hockey, Trampolining, Gymnastics, Swimming, Netball, Fitness, Table Tennis, Badminton and Rounders. These sports clubs give students the opportunity to develop skills, have fun and make new friends.
Sixth Form regularly compete in football tournaments on Wednesday afternoons against various schools in the West Bromwich Albion Academy. The girls’ gymnastics squad represented the academy at Walsall Schools Gymnastics Competition where each student competed in one floor routine and one vault routine. The squad excelled, just missing out on securing a place at the School Games Final. Throughout the year Hockey is offered every Friday after school which is delivered by a Wednesbury Hockey Coach. Many students attend these sessions and have gone on to represent the club at Regional and National level.
The academy also gives students the chance to develop their own leadership skills where they are required to assist in the running of primary and secondary sporting competitions throughout the year. We currently have 30 students that regularly assist in the planning and delivery of competitions making them enjoyable for all involved.
Extra-curricular dance forms part of our two dance companies, the youngest being the Junior Dance Company and the second being the Senior Dance Company. Throughout the year these groups work hard to build on technique and performance skills ready for performances that arise for example, dance showcase, assemblies and even trips to other schools where we showcase their work. Over 100 students were involved in the showcase this year ranging from Years 7 – 13. Students captivated audiences with their own choreography, elements of exam work, extra-curricular and class work.
Our Gifted & Talented students in Years 9 – 12 participated in a workshop with the fabulous Scarabeus Aerial Theatre which displayed different areas the dance students could branch out to in the world of dance. Students had the opportunity to develop their dance skills applying them on the aerial silks, finishing the day with an amazing performance from Scarabeus in which they told a beautiful story using platforms, silks and pipes.
