Having a dedicated time for enrichment and extra-curricular activities makes these activities more manageable and likely to happen. All students have a designated period every week for these activities. During this time, students have the opportunity to take up the clubs and societies of their choice – anything from sport, debating, art and drama. Also students have the opportunity to work with students at local Primary Schools and participate in voluntary work in the community.
Work Experience can support university applications and the move into full-time employment by showing a willingness to learn more about the field you wish to move into. Work Experience can be carried out during a free afternoon, at weekends, evenings and during holidays as well as in the last week of the summer term of Year 12. In most cases students are expected to arrange their own placements.
It is best to arrange placements as early as possible during the Academy year as there is such a high demand in certain areas.
