Our partnership with the Royal Opera House Trailblazers programme of high quality arts and cultural activities boosts creative learning; children partake in events such as Young Voices, Thurrock Poetry Competition, Infant and Junior Music Festival, Tilbury Lights, National Theatre and Rotary Club activities; all children have the opportunity to compete in a wider range of sporting competitions, including football, netball, cricket, cross-country and athletics; we raise academic aspirations through activities like Mathletics and Brilliant Club, where pupils participate in a scholars programme and graduate from University!

Children are also able to take on a variety of leadership roles throughout their time atTilbury Pioneer Academy, including School Council, Eco Council, Art Council, Pupil Librarians, and Digital Champions. Finally, we routinely support local and national charities, raising thousands of pounds for the benefit of others, including Comic Relief, Sport Relief, Water Aid, Tilbury Food Bank, NSPCC and Save the Children.

After School Clubs

We offer a good range of after school clubs available to choose from each term. Clubs range from drama and music to sports and art. Children really enjoy the clubs; both for what the club is offering and for the social aspects. Clubs run from 3pm until 4pm.

  • You can sign your child up for an after school club by visiting - it is a very 'user friendly' website
  • If you do not register your child for a club on Clubbly then your child will not be able to attend. Please also ensure you take note of the year group club that you are registering your child for. Your child will not be able to join a club that is not for their year group
  • The clubs will start from 3:00pm-4pm [Monday - Friday]
  • If you require support with registering your child please speak to a staff member in the main office.
Holiday Provision
