The Marsh Academy

Where people shine

Extended Day

We run a large number of academic and non-academic after school activities at The Marsh Academy every week.  Known as our Extended Day these activities provide opportunities to extend and enrich our pupils. Activities run for all key stages on Tuesdays and Wednesdays between 3:15pm and 4:15pm. It is compulsory for Year 7 and Year 8 students to attend one activity per week and older students are encouraged to participate. We offer a wide range of activities including Duke of Edinburgh Award, Shakespeare Drama Club, Photography, CSI Club, Origami and Homework Club as well as sporting activities including Football, Netball, Badminton and Rugby. KS4 and KS5 students may also be invited to subject revision and catch up sessions on other days of the week.

Transport home is provided on one evening per week for any KS3 student who travels to school on a school coach or train; if they would like to take part in more than one activity per week, and for students in other years, parents and carers will need to make appropriate travel arrangements at the end of the activity

The latest programme of activities can be found here 

The transport arrangements for Year 7 & 8 students are below, all other Year 7 & 8 students, who do not rely on school transport, must make their own arrangements as usual.
