Extra-Curricular Opportunities

At Kirkby High School we offer a wide range of extra-curricular activities to all students from all year groups. Extra-curricular activities enrich our curriculum and help students to develop their interests and abilities, provides valuable learning experiences outside their studies, and promotes independence and interpersonal links with students in other years.
Clubs and activities take place at breaktime, lunchtime and after school. If a particular interest is not covered, we support our students in starting their own clubs.
Students are also given opportunities to visit amazing places as part of our extra-curricular offer.
The clubs are completely free to the students and some even offer the chance to gain an additional qualification.
Opportunities on offer include:
  • Representing the school on sports teams
  • Learning to play a musical instrument
  • Duke of Edinburgh
  • Participating in the annual school production
  • Opportunity to attend Beth Tweddle gymnastics weekly sessions
  • Opportunity to join the Student Leadership Team.
  • Opportunity to be a Kirkby Ethical Ambassador
  • Targeted focus groups of students to support learning and understanding
