Isca Academy’s extra-curricular programmes are exceptional. Each department has a commitment to providing a stimulating and diverse extra-curricular programme for students. Opportunities range from the literary to the scientific to the creative and back again.
Each term we produce a guide to available extra-curricular activities in school. This is downloadable and features all of the activities available including sports, arts, library sessions, and study clubs. An overview of our outdoor education sessions is also available.
Clubs are changed throughout the year and these will be advertised to students in school and details sent out to parents. Subjects also offer a range of drop-in revision and support sessions which teachers will advertise to their students. Click the image to download the full programme.
