Extra Curricular - Sport

In Whitburn Academy, the P.E. department, Active Schools Scotland, and other members of school staff provide pupils in S1-S6 the opportunity to participate in after-school sports clubs.

A wide variety of sports is offered for both boys and girls, including Football, Rugby, Dance, Basketball, Gymnastics, Table Tennis, Personal Fitness, and Cricket, with regular opportunities for inter-school competition.

Whitburn Academy also has a full-time Active Schools Co-ordinator who helps support these clubs, and who aims to provide further opportunities for regular participation. Sports featured in previous sessions have included Hockey, Breakdancing, Badminton, Snowboarding, Handball and Triathlon Training. These sessions are run in partnership with local sports and athletic clubs in West Lothian.

Further up the school, pupils in S4, S5 and S6 can choose to study Physical Education as a Certificate Course at a variety of levels, whilst students in S5 and S6 are also offered opportunities to opt for courses in Sports Leadership and Community Leadership, and to apply to participate in West Lothian’s prestigious Excellence in School Sports Programme (ESSP), which looks to develop our young elite athletes.

The school also actively participates in West Lothian’s Champions in Schools programme, where adult elite athletes work with pupils, aiming to motivate them to participate in sport and to lead a healthy lifestyle.

Pupils should keep up to date with up and coming opportunities by listening to their tutor bulletin and checking the notice board in the PE department.
