We are very proud of the enrichment opportunities we are able to offer our students. Our day ends with a wide range of extra sessions that run from 4-5pm, Monday to Thursday.
All pupils take part in enrichment sessions. The offer ranges from the obvious homework club and interest clubs (e.g. debating, cookery, art or drama) to extended support in literacy, maths, science and modern languages.
We also place a great emphasis on physical fitness and encourage all pupils to take at least one sporting enrichment per week. We extend beyond the obvious teams (we are highly competitive in local and national competitions) to street dance, K-Kwando, table tennis and zumba! These sporting enrichments take place in addition to the double PE lesson every student has during the normal school day once a week.
We encourage as many students as possible to pursue their musical talents at Ark Academy. We have three fantastic choirs (girls, boys and the whole school choir) as well as keyboard club, samba band, and our own student radio station. 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.
