Successful sportspeople have the courage to take on a challenge, are committed, able to work in a team, treat others with dignity and respect, able to follow instructions and are driven to improve themselves.
These characteristics underpin what we feel an Adeyfield Academy student embodies and expect these characteristics across the whole school.
During their time at The Adeyfield Academy, all students are actively encouraged to take part in a wide range of extra-curricular sporting activities run throughout the week.
Autumn - Rugby Union, Netball, Football, Basketball
Summer - Athletics, Rounders, Cricket.
Alongside our focus sports we also offer opportunities to participate in other sports such as Cross Country, Trampolining, Table Tennis, Badminton, Boccia, Handball and Archery.
All students are able to take part whether they are competing against other schools in District or National competitions, competing in Inter-house competitions or simply taking an active approach to their Health & Well-being.
When students enter Year 9 they are invited to apply for a place on the Sports Leaders Course where they will gain a Level 1 qualification in Sports Leadership.
Students will be required to identify, develop and demonstrate the skills required of an effective sports leader and become an active member of the school community; running activities for younger students and/or assisting members of staff in extra-curricular clubs.
Students will also have the opportunity to lead activities for the local primary schools by assisting the Dacorum School Sports Network to run events for Year 1-6 pupils. Students are also regularly invited to run events for the Herts Youth Games and students who continue to demonstrate strong leadership qualities have also gone on to join the Hertfordshire Youth Leadership Academy.
