Extra-Curricular

Here at Walkden, we have a multitude of extra activities that not only widen learning experiences but also make academy life more enjoyable for you.

We have lots to choose from, and something for everyone. We have very successful sports teams, our cadet unit, an annual production, and an active LRC community much more.

We have regular trips and visits, both during and after academy hours, and we invite external visitors to talk to our students on various subjects.


During the pandemic, we had to suspend our extra curricular provision. As lockdown starts to ease, some of our departments are starting to offer extra-curricular clubs again. We will be regularly updating this section of the website to reflect which departments are now offering extra-curricular clubs as we move into the Summer Term 2021.


Combined Cadet Force

From the last week in April, our Combined Cadet force has started to Parade again. Parade will be held at 3pm on a Tuesday in the Atrium. Mrs Bawden is looking to recruit some new Cadets to the unit. So, if you are in Year 8, and want to know more, click here, to read what you will do and how to get involved.


PE Extra-Curricular

Our PE provision is opening up too, but all teams and activities remain in bubbles at the moment.

  • Year 7 extra-curricular PE will be on a Monday.
  • Year 8 extra-curricular PE will be on a Tuesday.
  • Year 9 extra-curricular PE will be on a Wednesday.

Clubs are open to anyone in that year group, and you can find out what the PE department are offering here.
