Extra-curricular activities

We want our pupils to enjoy a rich and varied school life and that includes a wide choice of stimulating extra-curricular activities.  There will be clubs and societies, school plays and performances, sports clubs, opportunities to learn additional languages and opportunities to start or join clubs like chess or other games as demand rises. In addition to the regular external visits there will be joint activities and competitions with other schools in the area and across London.

Music tution

we want our pupils to have the chance to learn a musical instrutement while attending ARK Atwood.  Currently our pupils have the chance to learn piano, violin and recorder.


School trips

Ark Atwood Primary Academy believes that our pupils should benefit from visiting places of interest. These experiences will broaden pupils’ horizons and deepen their learning. The academy will endeavour to take regular trips to London museums, galleries, theatres and parks. These will happen in school time. All the trips will be subsidised by the academy, but we will ask parents for a contribution towards the cost where necessary. We would not want cost to be a reason for pupils to miss out, so if parents are unable to make a contribution they should discuss this with the school.
