Clubs and Activities
We want our students to be fully rounded young people, and we offer a wide range of cultural and sporting activities both in school and outside school hours. We want every child to take a full and active part in every aspect of school life.
Students are encouraged to take up some of the many enriching activities that we offer. There are extra-curricular opportunities in Music, ICT, Drama, Art, Dance and Sport. We run clubs at lunchtime and before and after school. We are very proud of the success of our school sports teams, our outstanding music and our high quality productions, such as the Christmas Concert.
We also offer a wide range of day and residential visits, including geography field trips, visits to local businesses and universities, theatre visits and foreign language visits.

Clubs for all Year Groups
KOA Eco Schools Committee
Newly set up the KOA Eco Schools’ Committee has started work to achieve the Green Flag Award for KOA
Students from the Lower, Middle and Upper schools who are part of the Eco Schools Committee complete an audit of many environmental aspects of the site looking at issues such litter, recycling, and biodiversity around the site. From this an Action Plan is formed and work begins to upgrade the environmental workings of the academy from aspects of improving the grounds to ensuring environmental issues are reflected in the curriculum
We are aiming to achieve the Green Flag Award for KOA
Eco Schools meets twice a term in lesson time
This programme aims to rally and unite young people to make realistic but dynamic change, creating positive impacts for our planet now.
KOA Student Council
During October 2022, the new KOA Student Council was launched. There are 3 student councils, one each for Lower, Middle and Upper School. The councils consist of two students per year group who represent the views of the students in their year groups. Student Council members were selected through a combination of applications and elections. The councils meet twice termly to discuss key aspects of student life at KOA and bring ideas for different student projects, such as the Eco-Schools and Anti-Bullying campaigns, plus anything else the students want to address. As well as giving a platform for student voice across the 3 phases, this new student council also offers many of our students with the chance to develop their leadership skills. See the school newsletters for updates on what the Student Councils are achieving at Kings Oak!

LGBTQ+ Club or Pride Club
LGBTQ+ club, or Pride club, is a warm, inclusive space for young people to come, chat, make friends and discuss topical issues.
Our activities are mainly driven by the members – we have held sales of baked and other homemade goods, undertaken art projects, and are currently planning some graphic novel writing.
We often chat, eat biscuits, listen to music and socialise across the year groups – or share experiences and discuss issues, whichever our members feel like doing!
Everyone, including allies, is welcome.
