Proud to be an FMAT Academy

Extra Curricular programme

At Erdington Academy we place a great emphasis on character education. That is al the learning that takes place during childhood that is not necessarily academic.

Our ambition in the academy is to enrich lives and transform futures for our students. We believe in students developing their characters through participating fully in school life. Not just by fully engaging in lessons, but by becoming involved in the many competitions and clubs offered by the academy. We believe that this is important.

Participating in extra curricular activities helps students to develop skills and qualities that they may not in academic subjects. It helps students develop physically, mentally and socially.

As a new term starts, it is timely to share the activities that are available at Erdington Academy for your child:

Yours sincerely
