At the Aylesbury Vale Academy we provide a wide variety of enrichment opportunities aimed to broaden student experiences outside of their timetabled subjects, develop life skills, build their cultural capital and embed a love of lifelong learning.
The range of activities on offer include the chance for students to be involved in sports clubs, creative activities such as performing and producing art work or pursuing an academic interest such as creative writing or learning another language. We have a wide range of activities on offer to suit the varied interests of our students.
Year 9 and 10 Lesson 6 commenced on Monday 12 September and all Year 9 and 10 students are expected to attend school until 4pm two times per week Monday to Thursday, to take part in a variety of extra-curricular activities. Students must attend these sessions with correct equipment and kit to be able to fully participate from Day 1. We are pleased to have such a broad variety of activities on offer and look forward to sharing with parent/carers updates over the next term.
