Students have access to an extensive range of extra-curricular opportunities.
The performing and creative arts faculty offers weekly after school clubs where students can enjoy developing their skills in dance, drama, music and art. Students are also given regular opportunities to take part in performances; including working with the CBSO, RDC Youth Dance and Birmingham Rep. There is also an extensive peripatetic music timetable for students to opt into, covering most instruments and voice. Here at Shenley Academy we also widen student’s cultural and social experience through an extensive trips programme both city wide and nationally; including theatre trips, workshops, art exhibitions and performing arts shows. Our biennial production is always a highlight; in 2017 we performed “Little Shop of Horrors” and performed “The Wizard of Oz” in 2019. Our next Musical Theatre Production will take place in the summer of 2021.
Students also have access to a wide range of sports clubs and facilities covering a multitude of sports. These are open to all students – we encourage all students to participate, regardless of ability. Teams represent the academy in competitions across the region.
There are also opportunities for students to take part in a range of different trips and visits. Recent highlights include the Ski trip to the Alps, China, France, as well as some more local destinations.
In summary, there really is something for everyone.
