Enrichment and clubs

Enrichment

Enrichment is a unique aspect of the Academy, where pupils develop their wider educational skills and learning by taking part in activities beyond the core curriculum and therefore enrich their whole school experience.

There are extended days on a Monday and Tuesday (3.30-4.30pm) when enrichment activities occur. Here is a list of enrichment activities, including descriptions.

Monday enrichment is compulsory for Year 7 to Year 9 pupils and Tuesday enrichment is optional for all year groups and can be done as drop in activities.
