Extra Curricular Activities

Extra-curricular activities are a real strength of Queensbury Academy. Enrichment activities range from clubs at lunch time and after school, to weekend and holiday activities, plus a number of residential trips.

Throughout the academic year, many departments contribute to our programme ensuring we offer an extensive range of activities to engage all. Students are consulted regularly on opportunities they would like to be made available within school.

There is a wide range of sporting opportunities available for all students, from individual to team sports, which provide broad and balanced opportunities for students of all aptitudes and abilities, to participate in promoting a positive, healthy lifestyle through participation and competition.

There are also opportunities for all with a popular art, music and drama timetable which encourages the creative skills of our students. Evidence of this can be seen in the annual production which provides students with the opportunity to showcase their skills.

The Library will be open every evening from the 12.9.22 until 4.30 Monday to Thursday and 4pm on Fridays.

You do not need to register for a club, children can attend when they chose.
