At Leigh Academy Rainham we pride ourselves on developing the whole child and our rich, holistic  co-curriculum offer provides a wealth of opportunities for students to experience new interests, hobbies, skills, trips and activities beyond lessons. These fulfilling experiences can enrich students lives, allow friendships to blossom and nurture their confidence and self esteem. Co-curricular clubs and activities can provide students with a sense of purpose.  It is a platform for them to have a voice and a safe environment in which they can truly flourish. 

Co-curricular clubs and societies run on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday   from 3-4pm. These are led by class teachers and currently 98% of our students take part in at least one club including trampolining, table tennis, photography, drama, chess and Lego.  In addition Homework Club runs everyday from 3-4pm in the library for students to complete their home learning or further independent studies with the support of the librarian.
