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. Please click here for further Year 10 enrolment information. 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.
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.
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.
