Enrichment and Trips

Broadlands offers its students a range of additional activities and events to enrich and enhance their learning and further their personal development. Numerous trips and visits are organised every year across all curriculum areas and in all year groups, to enrich and enliven students' learning and inspire them to find out more. We have a rich extra-curricular offer that caters for students varying STEM, gaming, sporting and creative interests. The PE faculty offers a full programme of sports clubs and fitness training, including participation in football, rugby, basketball and hockey fixtures. From September 2021, a brand new House System will inspire regular competitions, charity events and student leadership opportunities.

Some examples of the extra-curricular activities currently on offer are:

  • The Academy is proud to run the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme each year.

  • Performing Arts hold concerts every year. Keen musicians can partake in additional music tuition lessons provided by B&NES Music Service.

  • E-Sports Club allows students to compete against other schools nationally in strategic games such as Rocket League and League of Legends as part of the British E-Sport Championships.

  • Students have the opportunity to partake in residential trips. These are organised each year and have previously involved trips to places such as London and Madrid.

  • As well as residential trips, many curriculum day trips are organised throughout the year to support the learning that takes place in lesson time.

  • To encourage social and friendship skills (having some fun time with their school friends) every summer Year 7-10 students have the opportunity to go with their year group to a theme park.

  • One of the highlights of the year and possibly most poignant evenings for all the parents/carers, staff and students involved, is the Annual Prom, celebrating the last day of Year 11 students' compulsory attendance at school. A night for dressing up, arriving in style, dancing to the beat, having fun and marking the end of five great years at Broadlands!
