Activites Week

Knox Academy has a long tradition of offering a suspended timetable programme to S1, S2 & S3 pupils.  This has always taken place in the last week of May, just before the new timetable begins.  This week is an important part of the education of all of the pupils involved.  It is a curriculum enrichment experience whereby pupils gain life skills through various activities/packages/residential trips that are on offer.  Whatever pupils choose to participate in during this week, the main outcome and focus is to develop important employability skills such as team work, confidence, communication, leadership, stress management and problem solving.

Residential Trips

  • S1 - Outward Bound (Lake District)
  • S2 - Italy 
  • S2/3 - PGL (South of France)
  • S3 - Paris

All residential trips are well underway and pupils participating in these trips should have all information from the trip leaders.  Any further information about these trips please contact the school.
