Enrichment & Extra-Curricular Opportunities
Goole Academy offers a broad and extensive programme of enrichment. This begins daily from 2.30pm. Due to current restrictions the enrichment timetables are suspended. However, they will be running as soon as it is safe to do so.
There are always more enrichment activities being offered, and so the attached enrichment timetables are subject to change. For students that normally get the school bus, please make sure to go to Student Reception the day before any enrichment activity and get yourself booked onto the school minibus so that you can get home safely after your enrichment session!

Our Music club is extremely popular and produces multiple performances each year and they also attend regional competitions. Amongst others, we offer Film, Dungeons and Dragons, Unicycling, cookery clubs and many more. We also offer a wide range of sports clubs and activities outside of the normal school day.
We provide a structured timetable of additional support to students in Key Stage 4. These can lead to further qualifications, such as Further Maths. Many activities also allow our pupils the opportunity to compete with others and gain success outside of normal classroom parameters. Achievements include: Finalists in the Lego Robotics Championships; Silver ModeShift Award and Battle of the Bands (where pupils gained 2nd place).
Visits & Residential
We offer a range of educational visits to a variety of locations. These have included The Deep, various careers fairs, as well as rewards trips to venues chosen by the pupils.
We also deliver a number of residential trips and overseas experiences. These have included visits to universities to raise student aspirations, a French Christmas Market, an week skiing in Bardonecchia in Italy, and water sports holidays to increase cultural capital. We are also very proud to be closely linked with external providers such as Youth Travel Ambassadors (through Get Active East Riding), Sports Leaders, R-Evolution and Young Enterprise.
Useful Enrichment Websites
As a school, we utilise multiple websites to aid and enhance the learning that takes place in the classroom.
Your child will have log-in information for all or some of the following websites, but please spend some time having a look at them, and encouraging your child to log some extra-curricular hours!
