In every one of our academies a vast number of after- academy enrichment activities take place each week. Students are provided with opportunities to add depth to their learning and develop personal skills through a rich and varied enrichment programme.
Students will have the chance to enjoy new experiences and consolidate their timetabled learning through this programme. Further detailed information on the opportunities available to students can be found in the academy’s Enrichment Brochure by clicking HERE

Students’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is linked through our expectations that students make connections between their numeracy skills and real life. Students are asked to considering pattern, order, symmetry and scale. They are often asked to reflect on data that has moral and ethical implications; including chance games. We ensure that students are taught mathematics in collaborative learning groups and structures in order to develop their social skills and to gain an understanding that they need to listen to each other and carefully consider each others’ opinions.
