At The Halifax Academy we encourage our students to take responsibility for their own learning and to improve their contribution to the life of the school by building on their interests and talents and taking advantage of the extra-curricular opportunities available to them. A wide range of clubs and activities are on offer to students, enabling opportunities for teamwork, creativity, building confidence, making friends and of course, having fun.
Our aim is for all students to feel valued and that they belong at The Halifax Academy. Should problems arise, support is always available; students may discuss issues with members of staff such as their house tutor or student manager. Calderdale School Nursing Team run a regular drop-in service offering students confidential emotional support and advice on a range of health issues such as nutrition, smoking, sexual health and relationships, self-harmimg and support with existing medical conditions.
Careers advice and appointments are available weekly. Please contact Mrs Jabbal for further information.
