Hodgson provides a vast array of opportunities beyond the classroom both during lunch times and after school. All students are encouraged to participate in at least one activity and subject areas offer a diverse range of clubs as part of the Hodgson Experience.
The PE department runs several extra-curricular activities for students including hockey, netball, badminton, basketball, cricket and athletics; Hodgson is proud of our strong sporting tradition and our success in local leagues. Inter House competitions in numerous sports are held for students to compete in and achieve points and trophies for their houses.
Performing Arts and Music are popular and successful areas with students offered the opportunity to take part in dance, drama, join the school band as well as take part in the annual whole school production.
The Visual Arts is another area in which the Academy is successful with students working with local artists as well as taking part in exhibitions and competitions at the Grundy Art Gallery and Blackpool and the Fylde College Gallery.
Hodgson runs a very popular Duke of Edinburgh award scheme for years 9, 10 and 11 where students take part in weekend expeditions and work towards certificates in team building, orienteering and camping skills.
