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 3.45-4.45 pm Monday to Thursday and 3.15-4.00pm on Friday.
Enrichment sessions run for a term at a time. A new range of activities is offered each term [some activities will continue beyond one term]. Below you will find the autumn provision. The new spring term offer will be uploaded at the start of the spring term.
While some pupils will be chosen specifically by their teacher to have extended support, this may take the form of study support or intervention lessons, those not targeted have the chance to choose an enrichment of their liking.
The offer ranges from homework club and interest clubs, including coding, robotics, art, drama and science experiment club through to a host of sporting and physical activities beyond the obvious team sports, such as football fun and cheerleading. 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 social action 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 two fantastic choirs, as well as an orchestra and rock band. We offer individual and group instrumental lessons to a large number of our students. There are frequent opportunities throughout the year to perform; both in and out of school.
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.
