Extra-curricular Activities

At David Nieper Academy we pride ourselves in our extra-curricular program, which was mentioned in our 2022 Ofsted visit,

 “Pupils can discover their talents and skills through lessons and extra-curricular activities. They have enterprise lessons and learn ‘employability attributes’. They can choose from over fifty clubs, including archaeology club, samba band and sports clubs. Leaders make sure that all pupils can go to London. Pupils learn to celebrate their home community and to take advantage of the possibilities that lie beyond.”

Every member of staff offered at least one lunchtime or after school club, so students get a breadth of choices throughout the year. We track the participation of students in attending clubs, in order to celebrate and encourage, but also so we can spot target areas for development. Over the course of this year, students have been offered over 75 clubs, ranging from indoor hockey to Dungeons and Dragons. 

If you should have any questions or suggestions regarding extra-curricular, then please contact Miss Perry or Miss Speed, our Extra-curricular Coordinators

Activities offered at David Nieper Academy

Engagement with non-academic pursuits is not only beneficial to student development, but is known to be highly valued by employers. At David Nieper Academy we believe in encouraging our students to discover and develop their own individual talents and passions.

We offer an exceptional programme of extra-curricular activities with a wide and diverse selection of clubs available. 

For further details on extra-curricular activities, or for any other co-curricular concerns, you should contact the Form Tutor in the first instance, or Mrs Speed, Co-ordinator of Extra-curricular Activities.

In addition to co-curricular activities, we also provide a range of extended opportunities for enrichment through our extra-curricular programme. As well as a range of sport and fitness clubs, students have access to a wide range of activities from science clubs, to library and book clubs, music, Duke of Edinburgh Award, Homework Club, House Competitions, and many more! If there is something not listed that students would like to see happening, please let us know and we will do our best to make it happen!

Finally, we are proud of our growing range of extra-curricular trips that we offer. Our Academy newsletter traces the vast array of locations that we have visited. These include a number of residential trips such as Wales, Italy and Norway.
