King’s Park Academy are proud to offer our children a wide range of extra-curricular activities which are led by our Curriculum Enrichment Co-ordinator, Miss R Holroyde. The vast majority of our clubs are run free of charge and include not only sports clubs designed to engage children further with team games but also clubs that celebrate the creative arts and those which further a love of learning. Currently the extra-curricular clubs on offer to all pupils, free of charge, are: Dance, Cross Country, Girls Football, Boys Football, Choir, Gymnastics, Library Club, Spanish and Gardening. As well as small charge extra-curricular activities which are: Gymnastics, Dodgeball and Karate.
In addition, King’s Park Academy have built a link with local community clubs and organisations such as AFC Bournemouth Community Team, Foundation Sports, JP Morgan/Number Partners, Bournemouth Council and Sainsbury’s. Over the academic year King’s Park Academy run additional clubs on the school grounds allowing our children the chance to experience and enjoy a wider range of sports and community based activities. This is inspiring the children with the opportunity to succeed and excel in competitive sport and allowing them to participate in wider community projects.

- Football, Basketball, Netball and Hockey Inter-academy within the Ambitions Academy Trust
