Our aim is to encourage students to become well-rounded individuals via a co-curricular programme that reflects our belief that individuals succeed in an environment where their abilities and talents are promoted.
Arcadia students are able to participate in a variety of co-curricular activities, including sports, arts, music and clubs, as well as learning about organic farming, animal care and the beautiful nature that surrounds the school.
PHYSICAL EDUCATION, SPORTS
At Arcadia Academy, we are committed to providing top quality physical education teaching and learning because we recognise the contribution that sport plays to the health and well-being of our students. We implement a broad and balanced Physical Education curriculum covering 6 units across the academic year.
Our students have access to our onsite all-weather football pitch, tennis court and running track, which was opened in September 2017. In addition, we have full use of a brand new, state of the art sport centre.
Our aim is to ensure that all pupils have a positive view of physical education and sport enabling them to continue to participate in later life.

AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMME
Students at Arcadia are able to take lessons in art, music and dance (ballet and street dance), with the opportunity for performing in musical theatre, concerts and dance shows.
During the year, Arcadia puts on performances at International Day, Christmas and at end-of-the-school year. We also produce smaller projects for festivals and special events.
Five years ago, at our small school house, we set out to make a movie called ‘Queen Teuta’s Treasure’, where the students played historical characters. Looking at it now reminds us of the passion and dedication that we stood for when we started Arcadia. We take pride in knowing that this spirit is still with us today, challenging us to create the best learning experience for our students. Watch till the end to see how we have progressed on our journey!
