At The Sutton Academy we believe enrichment is an entitlement and we expect all students to attend our extensive range of activities. In addition to trips, residential excursions and
international opportunities, there is a menu of activities that take place at lunchtime and after lessons as well as during holidays.
Enrichment offers students the opportunity to develop new interests, become more knowledgeable and skilled in an area boost self-confidence, and benefit from doing something away from the pressure of passing examinations.
The objective of enrichment is to:
- Widen students’ intellectual experiences
- Improve independent learning skills
- Develop love of learning
- Offer students the opportunity to pursue their interests
- Have fun and relax.
The extensive range of extra-curricular activities provide students with many opportunitiesto participate, for example in orchestra, choir, a range of sports teams, languages, cryptography, drama, dance and enterprise clubs. Students are active in fundraising fordifferent charities, and GCSE students have the opportunity to attend after-school classesin all subjects to help them to catch up on lost learning. Students say that they appreciatethe extra opportunities and help that they receive from their teachers. - Ofsted, February 2017
