Tuesday 22nd December 2020 Update

Following the First Ministers announcements on Saturday 19th December, and the National mainland return to Tier 4, East Lothian Active Schools has postponed the return of Outdoor Activity until after a review on Wednesday 20th January.

This decision covers all East Lothian Active Schools activity.

With a staggered return to schools in the New Year, and uncertainty over what Tier we will be living under in January, we thought it best to provide some clarity on our plans.

Our team will be working to support schools in their return to learning after the Festive Holidays.

We will also be planning for a return to activity in February, assuming we have reverted to Tier 3 or lower by then.

We know this will be disappointing, we are disappointed too.

We will be working hard to return our outdoor activities, as well as planning for a return to indoor activities as soon as we can.

We wish you all a fun and safe Christmas and New Year.

Best wishes.

Active Schools through Knox Academy offer a varied extra-curricular programme involving activities before, during and after school.


Knox Academy promotes a positive culture through the following:- WISDOM ENGAGEMENT RESPECT. I believe Sport and Physical activity are the perfect medium to develop these attributes for lifelong learning and wellbeing.


School clubs are run by a mixture of volunteers including staff, parents, coaches and development officers, and thanks to the formation of the Community Sport Hub, Knox has expanded the number of clubs by linking directly with wider Haddington community.


As well as running teams in football, rugby, hockey, basketball and badminton, the school has developed strong school cubs by working in partnership with community clubs such as Haddington Table Tennis Club, Tyne District Squash Club. The school also offers trampolining classes run by City of Edinburgh Trampoline Club.


Knox Academy are also proud to be one of only 30 schools in Scotland to be awarded “School of Rugby” status, leading to additional funding from the SRU and additional curricular time to develop rugby. We are currently also looking into developing a School of Hockey program - watch this space!


There are plenty of opportunities to get involved in sport and activity at Knox. So what are YOU waiting for?


At Active Schools we are always looking to promote opportunities for our Volunteers and Coaches to access training courses. 

You can now find the most up to date training information from our Partners & Governing Bodies at the Training For All Page


The Knox Academy Activity Timetable will be uploaded shortly.
