Sport Clubs and Enrichment
There are many opportunities for pupils to take part in extra curricular activities at LPA.
A large number of clubs and activities take place after formal lessons during our Session 6 programme. Staff are committed to providing different opportunities to enrich the lives of our pupils. Subject based clubs, such as those in Art, Drama, Music, Science, Sport and Technology enhance the curriculum and many trips and visits support classroom learning.
In recent years groups from Lydiard Park Academy have visited the following countries; USA, Iceland, Spain, France, Italy and Belgium.
Pupils are encouraged to enter competitions whether that is through our House system or as representative of an academy team. The Academy has a strong community focus and works with a number of local groups to help improve the local environment and LPA pupils participate in a number of local social events.
Our academy council and house system helps develop leadership skills and provide opportunities for pupils’ views to be heard. A core aim of the House system is promoting awareness of their chosen charity. Pupils are keen to educate others about their nominated charity whilst raising money and having a great deal of fun too!
There are Music concerts, a Young Musician of the Year competition, Battle of the Bands and a number of Drama productions each year which help pupils develop their performance skills and their self-confidence.
The P.E. department run many academy teams and the academy has a formidable reputation for the success of our teams in local competitions.
