In addition to Physical Education and Sport, the Arcadia School is now running The Arcadia Sports Academy. This is
where our squads and exceptional learners will be given coaching in their sport from our highly qualified and
experienced staff. The aim of this will be to encourage healthy competition whilst giving the students all the tools and
knowledge they need to understand what it takes to compete at the highest level of their chosen sport.
The Duke of Edinburgh award is a scheme that will run throughout the secondary school from Year 9 onwards, we will
encourage all students to sign up for the bronze award with the Silver or Gold award after being done on a voluntary
basis. Alongside this, Junior Dukes is an award similar to Duke of Edinburgh but aimed at our Primary students from
Year 1 – 6. This is aimed at encouraging their development in everyday life tasks outside of school and sport.
