Extra-Curricular Activities at JHN
AT the John Henry Newman Academy there are many opportunities for children to take part in regular extra curricular activities both during the school day and after school. We work with a number of people within the community to collaborate on and undertake larger projects. All of these projects and activities are opportunities for the children to enrich, develop and broaden through learning new skills, moving out of their comfort zones working as part of a team!
Keep a look out for updates on our whole school play Matilda. Auditions are well under way and we cannot wait to share our progress with you!
We will keep you updated with any fixtures and experiences on this page.
