The Rowans AP Academy

Inspiring change for a brighter future


At The Rowans, we offer a lot more than just academic excellence. We understand the importance enrichment has on pupils learning and offer a wide and exciting range of both academic and extra-curricular activities and visits to all pupils, such as:

  • Horse riding at squirrel’s farm
  • Canterbury Christ Church University Sports labs
  • The Tate Modern
  • Wimbledon 
  • Theatre trips
  • KS3 team building activities, such as orienteering and the London Monopoly trip. 
  • KS4 Hoppers residentials
  • Travel and tourism residential (previous trips to Alton Towers and Yorkshire). 
  • Mid Kent college 
  • Duke of Edinburgh expedition 

Pupils are also given opportunities during the year to visit places around the UK to support their classroom-based learning, including London and Yorkshire. 

Each year we have The Rowans activities week. Pupils choose from a range of trips and activities each day through the week such as: quad biking, go karting, rock climbing, theatre shows, zoo’s and beach visits. Activities week is a week dedicated to enrichment for all year groups, where pupils gain life experiences and create lasting memories.

At The Rowans we also have an inclusive extra-curricular programme. Securing funding from Kent Sport allows us to run Swimming lessons at Medway Park and coached boxing sessions led by Olympia boxing, plus clubs such as cooking, STEM, football and health and fitness.
