Berwick Academy students have access to a large sports hall, gym, squash courts and a high quality fitness suite. Outside there are extensive pitches and tennis courts including a full size, floodlit, astro turf, football and hockey pitch. To complement our facilities, we are fortunate to have easy access to the local sports centre and swimming pool.

Our students have good opportunities to perform. These include charity events and showcase evenings, and each year our Youth Theatre of singers, dancers, actors and musicians produce a school musical. There are workshops in art, music and drama with artists in residence. Additional music lessons are available in woodwind, brass, strings, drums, guitar, keyboard and singing. Performing Arts courses are available at Key Stage 4 and KS5 in the 6th Form.

We value education outside the classroom. There is a regular programme of visits to universities in the North East and Scotland to encourage our students to aim for higher education. Overseas visits take place every year, most recently to France and Belgium. A visit to Port Elizabeth in South Africa took place in summer 2013.

Our students have the opportunity to participate in a wide range of visits and trips in this country: the PE department undertake a sports tour; geography students carry out practical field work in the Lake District and on the Northumbrian coastline; technology pupils visit London and Edinburgh; history and RE students visit York, Durham, Newcastle and Holy Island; scientists visit the Centre for Life in Newcastle.

There are theatre visits to Newcastle and London and cultural visits to the Sage Music Centre and art galleries in Edinburgh and London.

Within the school day there are also a number of enrichment opportunities: Miss Carpenter runs a creative writing course and the MFL department offer catch-up drop in sessions after school.
