co-curricular

Morrison's Academy is a busy place both in and out of the classroom. Visitors often comment on the fact that relationships between pupils and staff are excellent. We believe that the multitude of after school activities that we offer are a vital ingredient in fostering this atmosphere of mutual respect.

cocurricular-movie-imagePupils are encouraged to try out new activities and find one or two that they enjoy: from debating to the Duke of Edinburgh Award, from chess to curling and from kayaking to karate - there is something for every pupil at Morrison's. We are very proud of the large numbers of pupils who take advantage of the opportunities we offer them in the areas of music, drama and sport as well as the smaller numbers of pupils who attend equally valuable clubs such as model building and photography.

Valuable life skills such as working as part of a team, problem-solving and socialising are learned in a way no textbook could ever put across and life-long friendships are formed by pupils (sometimes in different year groups) through shared interests. We hope you will be impressed by what we have to offer and we hope that you will encourage your child to come along and get involved. The fun that is to be had from an extra curricular activity is likely to be remembered long after the statistics painstakingly memorised for an exam have been forgotten!

"For the great majority, their most profound learning experience takes place outside the classroom."
John Abbott
