Extra-Curricular Clubs

At Knole Academy we put a great deal of emphasis on extra-curricular activities as they give students a broader perspective on life, higher self-esteem and develops essential life skills such as teamwork, problem solving and leadership. We encourage students to join at least one club and offer a wide range of activities. We offer a diverse selection of sports clubs from rock climbing to golf. We have an annual school production and dance show as well as a variety of music clubs and events.

Our Combined Cadet Force is very popular with Key Stage 4 students, whilst allowing them to develop a wide range of new skills it also encourages self-discipline and leadership.

All students have the opportunity to enrol in The Duke of Edinburgh scheme. We offer Bronze, Silver and Gold with qualified staff running successful expeditions at all levels.

Sadly due to COVID-19 there will be no mixed year group clubs but we hope to offer a good range of extra-curricular opportunities.

CCF (Combined Cadet Force)

The Knole Academy Combined Cadet Force has built on the initial success of its first standalone year and is now 30 strong. With students from year 10 to year 13 the contingent is an interesting mix of ages and abilities with all students working together to improve their skills and confidence. Cadet Sargeant Major Sam Davis (Head Boy) led the contingent and has been a great role model.

The Cadet training team from Longmoor continued to help the Knole staff to run sessions every Thursday with activities including Archery, first aid, camouflage, section attacks, air rifle target practice, orienteering, obstacle course and problem solving.

Cadets from year 11 took part in a range weekend where they fired live rounds at targets over a variety of distances and terrains before being given survival training and learning new skills for living off the grid.

In November the contingent lead the school’s two minutes silence on 11th November with a respectful service conducted by Sergeant Major Toomey and supported by honouree cadet Oliver Whitehead whose rendition of The Last Post was very moving. We are grateful to Corporal Sam Barditzky who pushed for this to happen.

Although we have had to cut our training short this, year we will send letters to all our year 10 students over the summer to look for new recruits ready for our return in September 2020!
