At The Oldham Academy North we offer excellent extra-curricular opportunities and activities outside the main curriculum.
These activities are an important and exciting feature of academy life and contribute enormously to our students’ social and academic development.
We believe that all of our students should experience success in as many aspects of academy life as possible. Extra-curricular opportunities present another avenue to success.
Regular sports clubs, including football, basketball, cricket and netball take place throughout the week, both during and after school. Further activities designed to enhance students’ classroom learning include robotics club, film club and a young journalists club.
Each activity allows students to make full use of our state-of-the-art facilities, including sports hall, 3G sports pitch and computer provision.
We also offer every student the opportunity to complete a bronze level Duke of Edinburgh award that allow students to learn vital skills such as navigating with a map and compass, cooking on a stove and being responsible for carrying and setting up their own camping equipment. It provides a memorable experience every year and is very popular amongst students.
