Cartoon Club, Technology Club, F1 Club and Brilliant Club

In line with the current Coronavirus Risk Assessment we are unfortunately unable to offer our usual wide range of extra-curricular activities

We hope this becomes something that we are able to offer once again in the near future.


Extra Curricular Activities


Opportunities exist before, during and after school to support work in the classroom. The library is open from 8.00 in the morning and after school. This gives students access to computer facilities as well as other learning resources.  Students are also encouraged to use the restaurant area for private study, where breakfast is available from 7:45am and students can access hot drinks and food all day.


On an average week Quarrydale Academy offers a wide variety of different clubs for students to take part in. This offer encompasses all manner of different opportunities from study sessions and GCSE revision and sporting activities to Cartoon Club, Technology Club, F1 Club and Brilliant Club

Instrument Lessons

We offer private lessons in the following instruments:

· Vocals

· Woodwind (Clarinet, Flute, Saxophone)

· Piano

· Brass (Trumpet, Trombone, Horn, Tenor Horn, Tuba)

· Guitar & Bass

· Drums

· Violin

· Music Theory

Lessons are subsidised by the school and are charged on a termly basis via Parent Pay:

· Individual lessons - £70 a term (approximately 12 lessons)

· Shared lessons - £40 per students a term (approximately 12 lessons)

· Students who receive Free School Meals and/or Pupil Premium are entitled to free lessons.

· Students who study music at KS4 and KS5 are entitled to free lessons.

Students who take Woodwind, Brass and Violin lessons will be loaned an instrument by the school at no extra charge.

Lessons are 20 minutes and take place during the school day and time rotate each week to ensure students don’t miss the same class lesson each time.

Taking instrument lessons builds students’ resilience, organisational skills, communication skills, independence and creativity and teamwork. They also have the opportunity to join extra-curricular groups such as choir and the Christmas Orchestra as well as performance opportunities throughout the year both in school and in the local community.
