Extra Curricular Activities

Extra Curricular Activities

Although academic lessons form a majority of a student’s life in school, Rushden Academy believes that opportunities for pupils to flourish in an extended curriculum are also important. We have an excellent reputation for developing skills and increasing participation in drama, music and physical education. There is an extensive programme of opportunities at lunch time and after school. Field trips and study experiences outside of school happen throughout the year, these are organised by individual faculties. There have been recent visits to Paris and Berlin so that pupils can immerse themselves in another culture as well as visits to see drama productions. The academy has been visited by both authors and theatre companies to deliver a range of experiences for pupils.

Drama at Rushden is a strength both in terms of the results that pupils achieve in their formal exams but also in terms of the experiences available to participate outside of normal school hours. Recent major productions have included ‘The Addams Family’ and ‘Our House’. The audience always comment on the high quality of these productions and the standard of student’s performances.

Sport is an important part of many student’s lives at Rushden Academy. The academy has tennis courts, Sports Hall, gym, fitness suite and a very large playing field. Pupils compete against other schools in various sports including football, netball, athletics and rounders.
