Optional Extra-curricular Activities

We are all too aware of the challenges for families and students during current national school closures. Therefore, we have created a booklet below with optional choices for our community to engage with at their leisure. Please feel free to access these in your own time, after timetabled lesson or indeed the weekend. Whilst we will maintain our lesson delivery and academic communications with you, we are also keen to support your well-being.

This document is split into the five different sections indicated below. Each section has its own page designed by specialist staff with lots of links and activities for you to engage with.

Well-being Extra-curricular Activities Booklet

We have also created a booklet for everyday well-being. We know that one of the challenge is spending lots of time in front of a computer or tablet as well as trying to remain active. We have therefore created a guide that can be incorporated in your daily routine.

 Aspire Higher

Every person at some point in their lives, gets to the point where they feel everything going on in their lives is too much to deal with. For some, it is not until they reach adulthood that they experience this, for others it can be in their youth. There is no shame in admitting to ourselves, and others, when we feel that life is getting to that point. The lockdowns that we have been living through over the last year, have applied extra pressure and we need a little extra help and guidance now more than ever.

With that in mind, we have identified a series of webinars that can help us all through. The following recordings have been created by Dr Mike Scanlan on behalf of the Northamptonshire Aspire Higher programme. Corby Business Academy have been working beside Aspire Higher for 4 years so far and they have supported the academy with a number of activities and resources.

These are the latest that they have funded on behalf of our students:

1. Coping with the pressure of achieving
2. What works to feel less stressed
3. How do I stop anger from making me mess up
4. Learning how to face your fears and overcome them
5. Being calm enough to concentrate well



SSS Learning have also produced a video for child mental health and well-being containing 10 topic tips for parents and carers.

Corby Business Academy has arranged for our students and families to enjoy a free, online, 45 minute yoga session; every Thursday at 3.10 p.m. - 4.00 p.m. until the end of term.

These online exercise classes are being delivered by a qualified instructor from the Ironstone Wellbeing Centre, Kettering. Whilst aimed at teenagers, the classes are suitable for all - whether you have practised yoga before or never at all.

The Academy is funding the classes in the hope that it will assist our students, parents, carers and staff to deal with the stress and anxieties of lockdown. Over the three sessions, Sue will teach different techniques and the skills needed to cope with the challenges a teen faces on a daily basis.

Please view the video below to see the session sequence flow:
