Co-curriculum

At Dixons Trinity Chapeltown, involvement in co-curricular electives are just as important as academic study. We provide a varied and full programme of co-curricular and extra-curricular electives.  

Our partnerships include: Row Uk; Chess in Schools; Leeds Rowing Club; Attitude Dance Club and York Stage School.  Sport, public speaking, music dance and drama are particular strengths while other clubs and societies cater for more esoteric interests.  Each student in the middle and upper peak has access to this provision to ensure that they experience a broad, balanced and fulfilling curriculum.

Each week, all students in the middle and upper peak spend an afternoon taking part in Co-Curricular. In year 7 and 8, students change their electives each cycle in a range of enriching activities as part of our Autonomy approach. After experiencing a range of electives, from year 9 onwards, students elect one co-curricular to participate in for the next three years as part of our Mastery approach. By the end of year 11, all students will have represented the academy, or gained recognised accreditation, in their chosen elective.     

The Co-Curricular Electives available include: rowing, indoor rowing, cricket, chess, dance, drama, art, music, STEM, sign language, sports leaders, digital leaders and choir.  Students electing the arts deliver a showcase at the end of each cycle which also includes musical performances from primary students.  Students electing sports take part in the sports showcase at the end of each cycle.  In addition to this, all students take part in a sports showcase at the end of Cycle 3.

Our co-curricular offer is linked closely to the Summits which enhance and enrich the academic curriculum in order to provide each student with a sense of purpose so they become well-rounded individuals who will thrive at university, in the professional world of work and, ultimately, in life.
