Rushey Mead students have a wealth of clubs and extra-curricular opportunities to choose from.
These activities are not only fun but also a great way to develop friendships with others. Many clubs help students to develop leadership skills, indeed some are run by students for students.
The PE faculty offers students the chance to compete as part of a team or to attend participation clubs. No matter the prior standard or experience of students there is something for everyone. Sports and activities on offer include basketball, football, netball, cricket, rugby, tennis, trampolining, badminton and fitness development.
There are similarly many opportunities to perform. Dance in many forms, drama (including an annual academy production) and music are all enjoyed during lunchtimes and after academy by many students. Students can learn to play keyboards, have singing or drumming lessons and then join a band to put their performances together.
The opportunity to lead others is something we believe really benefits students, in terms of self-esteem, confidence and future success. The Duke of Edinburgh award is available for older students. All students have the opportunity to lead activities in clubs and groups and are recognised through our leadership development programme, “Compass”.
