Please see below for the individual clubs on offer for each year group.

Education at Tuxford is not focused on what just happens in the academic classroom. We believe that it is also crucial to develop the whole child and this is helped and facilitated through a wide range of extracurricular clubs and enrichment experiences. Extra-curricular activities promote a wide set of skills and positive attributes such as: a determination to succeed, teamwork, winning and losing with grace, respect for others, tolerance and inclusivity, developing confidence, a sense of fun and enjoyment, creativity, physical and wellbeing benefits. This helps all students to grow socially, emotionally and physically into well rounded young adults. The extensive clubs and enrichment opportunities that we provide for students are a real source of pride for us.

Students also have the opportunity to act as leaders of activities, meetings and teams as well as the chance to take on roles such as college presidents, prefects, form reps, subject ambassadors, sport leaders and represent the student voice on a number of committees As an academy, we are also passionate about the arts, with state of the art facilities in drama, music, art and design and technology. Every two years, we stage full scale academy performances, which are widely renowned for being of a professional quality, and welcome an audience of over 1,000 people throughout the course of the week. These performances offer students the chance to showcase their talents in acting, lighting, make up, set-design, sound engineering and much more. The 2022 performance is ‘Adrian Mole – The Musical’.
