Extra Curricular

Netherhall Learning Campus believes that education is about more than passing exams.

Pupils should have opportunities to broaden their horizons and engage in new and different experiences. This might include learning new skill, such as photography, learning a musical instrument, taking part in creative activities such as Art or Drama, increasing their health and fitness through physical activities or developing increased self-confidence and life skills through such schemes as the Duke of Edinburgh awards.

In addition to regular weekly activities listed below, students will also be offered the opportunity to take part in visits to museums, galleries, theatres and sites of historical and cultural interest, including trips abroad.

Art and Design

Activities to be confirmed for 2017.


Are you interested in Films?
Sitting down and watching a great film with like-minded film fans is what FilmClub is all about. Films have the power to amaze, engage, inspire and entertain. As well as watching films during the FilmClub here at Netherhall Learning Campus, we take trips to local cinemas and film festivals taking place in cinemas in the region.

FilmClub takes place in the Studio School every Thursday after school and offers a range of films for ages 11-16. Come along with your friends and watch your favourite films such as: Harry Potter; The Rise of the Guardians; Finding Nemo; Billy Elliot; Despicable Me and The Hobbit to name just a few.
- FilmClub is run through the support of IntoFilm and the BFI.


The department provides on-going support for all students throughout the year. Students also have access to websites that can significantly improve their prospects of improving achievement levels. Providing they have Internet access, students can work at school or at home as part of their individual independent learning programmes. At school, staff are always on hand to explain particular processes or deal with specific questions that are causing the student difficulty.

  • Classroom and Homework Support Session | Mondays 3-4pm
    Students can gain access to computers to do online homework or get help with any topics which are causing them difficulties. Teachers are on hand to help with inidividual issues. Everyone welcome!

  • KS3 Master classes
    One lesson at the end of each half-term, Excellent Teacher, Jonny Heeley, delivers a master class to Year 7 and Year 8 which embeds practically the skills covered in that half-term's scheme of work. These take place in either the Studio School Performance Area or the Main Hall.

  • KS3 “Sumdog” competitions
    At regular intervals throughout the year our Year 7, Year 8 and Foundation classes are entered into Kirklees, national and international competitions which test their mental arithmetic through a variety of games on the “Sumdog” website. (Each student will be given a unique password in September). This is provided via the internet at home or in school ICT facilities.

  • KS4 GCSE Exam and Mock exam revision
    Students can get extra help with particular topics or examination practice. These take place most evenings (3-4pm and often 3-5pm) in the half-term preceding the exams. In the weeks leading up to formal exams there is a weekly after school revision sessions covering specific topics. The topic list will be published in advance so students can make sensible decision around which weeks they personally need to attend. Of course any student with particular concerns can and should talk to their own Maths Teacher and arrange to receive extra help on an adhoc basis.


Music plays a very important part in the life of NLC and all students are encouraged to take part in one of the many activities on offer. Students who already play an instrument will automatically continue on transfer from Year 6, while for others there are lots of opportunities to learn new skills and techniques.
