Clubs and Activities

There’s more to life at Colchester Academy than just study! Our curriculum is supported with a high quality enrichment and extra-curricular programme which provides extended opportunities for students to participate in clubs and partnerships which broaden and enrich individual learning and provide physical, social, cultural, creative and charitable experiences.

Our range of recognised and accredited enrichment opportunities will help to develop the essential skills needed for future employment, education and training.

We also encourage all our students to participate in learning experiences in business and enterprise to develop their entrepreneurial skills and in coding, electronic systems and IT.

Our extra-curricular activity programme runs before school, during break and lunchtimes as well as after school and many activities cater for specific groups of students, e.g. younger students in Years 7 and 8 or gifted and talented students. We believe that the wide range of activities we are able to run means that there really is something for everyone.
