In addition, all students will have lessons in physical education.
Throughout both key stages specialist help is given to students with learning difficulties and the most able are fully challenged through the use of enrichment and extension materials.
New Forest Academy is well resourced with a community wide network and a number of fully equipped computer rooms, and computer workstations in every classroom. All students at key stage 3 have a discrete lesson of computer studies each week.
