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.

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.
