At Newark Academy we are committed to providing all students with a rich and balanced education. A significant aspect of this, and one we are rapidly developing, is to ensure all students can access a diverse range of high quality enrichment activities. Our enrichment sessions are also open to the wider community and we welcome children from Year 5 upwards to come along to any of our after school sessions. Please contact the school for more information.
We are thrilled to be working directly in partnership with Active4Today and are excited to launch our new and exciting enrichment programme for the Spring Term. All sessions begin week commencing 22nd January (unless otherwise stated) with the exception of our homework and study support sessions which begin when students return to school after Christmas.
As well as a varied sporting offer including cricket, netball and football students also have the opportunity to get involved with a multitude of exciting extracurricular opportunities including; journalism, graffiti art, media, gardening, Japanese, photography, rock school and many more! We also have a number of new clubs and activities (highlighted in red) for the Spring Term including contemporary dance, driving theory training and carpentry. Attendance at all clubs will enable students to earn credits towards their Newark Youth College portfolios. More information on this can be obtained from the enrichment team - Mrs Vause and Mrs Brown.
As a reminder to parents, the school will be open for students both before and after school (until 5pm) with supervised revision/homework areas that can be used to complement classroom based studies. There will be no need to pre-book these and the supervised study sessions will commence on the first day of term. Students will need to book their place at all other sessions however – please return the booking form at the back of the enrichment booklet to school or contact reception to secure your child’s place.
Please follow the link to see the enrichment brochure for the Spring Term 2018. Clubs start week commencing 22.1.18 unless otherwise stated.
