Enrichment Activities

The curriculum at Pleckgate extends far beyond the academic and vocational lessons offered during the school day.  We provide a vast array of enrichment activities across key stage 3 and key stage 4, which support our pupils to develop their interests and talents outside of the classroom.  These experiences help pupils to develop their resilience, confidence and independence, as well as keeping them physically and mentally healthy.

At present, 60% of our pupils take part in extracurricular activities at Pleckgate.  These activities range from physics and mathematics competitions, to Duke of Edinburgh awards, to baking and cooking competitions alongside numerous sports teams and clubs.  40% of our pupils take part in extracurricular activities at least once each week.  The most popular activities are in the PE, maths and English departments.   Please download the Enrichment Calendar for full details of all the activities on offer to our pupils before school, during lunchtime and after school.

“The Community of Pleckgate has a local secondary school it can be proud of.  It provides an excellent education for all its pupils. They flourish in a bright, positive and secure environment”
