We feel that our extra-curricular provision is a vital aspect of what we do at E-ACT Crest Academy. It is the opportunity for pupils to enhance and develop their skills; further develop their social interaction and ability to work individually or as part of a team both of which are vital life skills.

At E-ACT Crest Academy, we are proud to have two coaches from Greenhouse Sports that mentor our students. Take a look at how our coaches inspire our students:
Greenhouse Sports Highlights
Our students experience amazing opportunities with our Greenhouse coaches. Here are just a few fantastic memories:
Visit to meet James Harden, NBA Basketball Legend
Greenhouse sports and Adidas held an event where students got to meet James Harden, NBA basketball legend. Students played basketball sessions, Malachi and Laui stood out and shone against the rest of the students that were present. Even being year 8 students you could tell they were a calibre above the older kids. Nazha was put in the girl group and competed well within her group.
Table Tennis Programme
A group of students went to the Greenhouse Sports tournament called ‘The Alan Sherwood Cup’. This year there were two divisions where Hashim Y7 and Sufyan Y9 played well to finish mid-table in the B division, this was especially good for Hashim being a year 7 student and only playing table tennis for a short amount of time. He held his own vs much older players with help from his partner Sufyan who took a leadership role within the team encouraging throughout which coaches/players from other schools noticed.
Roumualdo Y9 and John Y10 were in the A division vs 10 other teams, they did incredibly well against some very good players from the other 10 teams to come 1st and win the Alan Sherwood Cup. The achievement was boosted by the fact they managed to win a couple of tight matches that could have gone either way to then remain unbeaten throughout all the team matches which they enjoyed and I was proud of. Although I am new to Crest having only been here since April, I have worked for Greenhouse for many years so I have known Roumualdo and John since they both started playing in Crest so it was nice to see them win the event in style. They both won new rubbers hat are worth over £80 which will improve their bat
Greenhouse Basketball Programme
Greenhouse Sports run lunch time clubs for students to play basketball. This is great as lunch time club you can come in and just play basketball, no coach giving you instructions. This has opened the door for basketball for many students and now our team after school sessions and our individual morning sessions have grown in popularity due to the fact that students have been participating in lunch time club.
