Drapers' Academy are very pleased to offer a wealth of activities offered at lunchtime and after school. These have proved to be popular with all year groups and abilities and give students the opportunity to discover and develop new talents. Many of our clubs on offer can also improve resilience, self- esteem, and confidence.
The PE Department do a fantastic job in holding a variety of clubs from football to Bike Polo. These change every term so there is something for everyone.
We have excellent practice room facilities where pupils of all musical abilities can express themselves on guitar, drums, keyboard and vocals. Pupil are given the freedom to experiment independently.
We have a choir that represents the school in a variety range of performance opportunities ranging from Romford Market Place to the Queens Theatre.
Our pupils are extremely talented. To develop this talent, we have a Drama club, Dance club and a Musical Theatre club, all very recently started. There will be performance opportunities.
We are always looking for ways that our clubs can reach out to the local community. The Creative writing club are currently creating a story for pupils in our community for the upcoming Junior Music Festival at the Queens Theatre in June. We have strong links with residential Homes in the local area. This encourages an appreciation of different cultures, further enhancing their journey to becoming responsible citizens who think of others before themselves.
We firmly believe that all these experiences and opportunities contribute to the development of a well-rounded individual, confident and full of character.
We welcome and consider ideas for future clubs from staff and pupils and look forward to your child’s participation.
