Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Enrichment

Planned and carefully selected Enrichment opportunities are part of the Academy’s curriculum offer. We believe the value added from Enrichment can help to enhance performance and teach life skills that will equip our students to be a good and effective citizen, in an ever-changing world, once they leave the Academy.

What skills does Enrichment teach?

  • Perseverance & tolerance – keep going for the long-haul
  • Build strong relationships - Teamwork
  • Include & respect everyone
  • Hard work - determination to succeed
  • Win and lose with grace
  • Confidence in yourself & your beliefs
  • A sense of fun and enjoyment
  • Creativity
  • Positive focus and attitude
  • Health benefits
