Home / Secondary Phase / Electives


Astrea Academy Sheffield is committed to developing the whole child and our curriculum has been shaped around this belief. We believe our scholars are entitled to a curriculum which offers them chances to do things they might have never done before. We think these opportunities are so important that they make up an integral part of our academy day in which everyone takes part in.

Electives are activities which take place within the timetabled curriculum and provide scholars with an incredibly broad range of activities that would not be possible to deliver in a normal after school setting. As electives are during the school day, every pupil has the opportunity to take part – no matter their circumstances.

The activities change each term to give scholars more choice and experiences. Electives gives staff the opportunity to share their varied skills and expertise plus a wide range of external suppliers supplement our offer. Electives which have run previously include: rock climbing, skate boarding, The Great Astrea Bake Off, creative writing, circus skills, photography, board games, Mandarin and go karting.

These high-quality enrichment opportunities include a rich programme of sporting activities and community-based service.
