Paddington Academy offers excellent extra-curricular opportunities. These activities are designed to broaden and develop the mind and body. Students have regular opportunities to visit museums, exhibitions and theatre, as well as enjoying longer residential trips both within the UK and abroad. We do our best to support extra curricular activities and also aim to support students in gaining accreditations, such as the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme. The school library is open each day, every day encouraging students to read from the vast range of titles stored.
PA hosts sport competitions against other schools which take place after hours in sports such as football, athletics, basketball etc.
The Academy also runs a series of study support lessons for a range of subjects throughout each year group, with targeted intervention strategies at key points in years 10, 11 and sixth form. This programme includes weekend sessions and special holiday sessions.
If you feel that there are other areas we could cover or improve please let us know, we would love to hear from you.
Year 7 and Year 8 students can participate in a series of school clubs. The timetable for lunch time and after school clubs is available for your view here. More information about these clubs is available at the following link.
