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.
The 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.
