At Ark Burlington Danes we have exciting and engaging extended schools and enrichment programme.
We believe that all our young people should be able to live their lives to its fullest, and enrichment sits alongside our academic offer in ensuring that we are best able to provide this experience. Our programmes include extra-curricular classes, trips and visits and special events. We will offer residential and personal development experiences and opportunities for young people to participate in their local community.
Intervention classes and weekend residentials help raise attainment and provide extra support in key areas including coursework and exam techniques. The library is open until 4.30pm in the evening and before school from 8.00am.
Enrichment refers to activities that encourage the subject based skills ensuring greater success in that subject, as well as activities that give broader experience to students. These experiences not only help students to perform better in interviews when competing with others from different backgrounds, but also demonstrate a more rounded character that helps when applying for university or jobs. Each course offers enrichment that both develops the students’ subject skills but also deepens their understanding of our values.
Enrichment is a key piece of what we do at Ark Burlington Danes 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.
Staff members will keep a register for all clubs, and we will keep you up to date on the clubs and experiences they have taken part in throughout the year.
