We are very proud of the enrichment opportunities we make available to our students. Our day ends with a wide range of extra sessions that run from 3.35-4.30pm Monday to Thursday and 3.10-4.00pm on Friday.
While some pupils will be choosen specifically by their teacher to have extended support, this may take the form of study support or extension lessons, those not targeted have the chance to choose an enrichment of their liking. The offer ranges from the obvious homework club and interest clubs (e.g. cookery, art, drama and film club) to a host of sporting and physical activities beyond the obvious team sports such as boxing, football fun and badminton. These sporting enrichments take place in addition to the double PE lesson every student has during the normal school day once a week.
It is through enrichment the school has become heavily involved in the North London Citizens Campaign which has seen our pupils take part in a host of activities and campaigns from the London Living Wage to the Passports not Profits campaign for young people.
We encourage as many students as possible to pursue their musical talents at Ark Academy. We have a fantastic choir, as well as keyboard club and drumming club. We also partner with the Brent music service to offer individual instrumental lessons to a large number of our students.
All in all, enrichment is a key piece of what we do at Ark Academy and our pupils love the opportunities that our extended day provides. We are in no doubt that enrichment adds significantly to our students' academic progress and their involvement in school life and in the wider community.
