Newmarket Academy has a strong commitment to the added value of learning outside the classroom and beyond the school premises. It will seek to provide a broad & balanced range of Learning Outside the Classroom opportunities for all its students.

Out of hours Clubs (music, drama, art, science, sport, homework etc)
School sports teams
Regular local visits (places of worship, swimming, other local amenities)
Day visits for particular groups
