Students at the Ruth Gorse Academy are able to access exceptional opportunities to take part in extra-curricular activities. As well as the extensive health and fitness clubs run by the PE department, students all take part in compulsory extra-curricular after school on Thursdays. This programme is designed to provide all students with important life skills such as first aid training, public speaking skills, and knowledge of health and nutrition. As well as weekly extra-curricular activities, students are encouraged to take part in a wide range of enrichment activities which include trips during the school day and where appropriate, international visits. We are determined that all young people, regardless of financial circumstances, should have access to such experiences and encourage families to apply to our Supporting Achievement Fund as required for assistance.
