In addition to our formal curriculum Hayle Academy offers a wide range of after school clubs, activities, team games etc., which we call Hayle Xtra and we also provide a formal GCSE Study Support programme for students in years 10 and 11.
aim of our Hayle Xtra and the GCSE Study Support programme is to
enrich, extend and enhance our students’ experiences of school
life. Hayle Xtra includes courses that lead to qualifications,
for example Duke of Edinburgh, First Aid, languages and dance
and others that develop interests and hobbies such as drama and
sports. The Learning Resource Centre (library) is open daily
from 8:00 - 8:45am, 10:30 - 10:45am, 12:25 – 1:25pm and 3:15 -
4:15pm. The various clubs and activities may be seasonal, run
for a short period or throughout the year. Full details can be
found in our Hayle Xtra booklet.
GCSE Study Support
offers specialist support in all subjects to enhance GCSE
examination performance. The majority of sessions are voluntary
but where students are not meeting their achievable grades then
students will be expected to attend. Full details can be found
in our GCSE Study Support booklet.
Hayle Xtra and GCSE
Study Support is normally for one hour from 3:15 to 4:15pm. A
free bus service which leaves the school site at 4:15pm every
day ensures no student is prevented from staying on.
