At Guilsborough Academy we encourage all our students to participate in as many extra-curricular activities as possible. Our extra learning opportunities offer students a chance to try something new, develop existing skills while nurturing friendships and broadening experience and enjoyment.

Our extra-curriculum activities range from an array of sporting and fitness clubs and activities, to the annual drama production and various musical events throughout the academic year. However, for those students who don’t share these interests, the school also offers table-top clubs, coding and an allotment club. The learning resource centre (LRC) also offer activities during social times for students to join in with which include a homework club, puzzles and games, Quillich and reading.


The timetable below is intended to give you a flavour of what is on offer to you in the Guilsborough Academy Extra-Curricular programme. The very best thing to do, is just get stuck in; it might spark an interest in something that could last a lifetime!


PE Extra-Curricular Activities 

We offer a wide variety of PE extra-curricular activities. Our sports teams also have regular fixtures both at Guilsborough and in other local schools. The timetable for extra-curricular PE activities can be found below. 


What do our students think about our extra-curricular activities?

All the books are really good it’s hard to choose

Year 7 Student

The LRC is one of my favourite places in the school

Year 8 Student

Coming into the LRC and doing the puzzle, helps me to relax and keeps me calm. I love playing chess on a Friday.

Year 10 Student

The LRC is a spacious, busy, welcoming place. Students from various year groups use it for completing homework on the computer, finding a reading book, or just to play one of the many different board games on offer. The LRC is a hub of learning and fun all in one place!
