All students have the opportunity to participate in many enrichment opportunities. Enrichment is a key feature of our curriculum. In addition to homework and revision clubs, students can benefit from over 100 different activities. These range from Chess and Debating, to Photography and Basketball.
Students might want to get involved in our Student Parliament, and becoming the mouthpiece of the student body, or in contrast, articulate in a very different way by joining our very own Capital Performing Arts Company. Students will have the opportunity to audition for a place in Capital’s Theatre Company, Dance Company, Band …. Or even all three!
Opportunities also include pulling on your walking boots, and joining our outdoor explorers. The Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme develops leadership skills, while extensive educational trips broaden our learners’ experiences. These include overseas visits supporting different parts of our curriculum.
Our varied and extensive enrichment programme runs daily before school and until 6:00pm including some weekends and holidays. Students in older year groups get the opportunity to deliver programmes and obtain qualifications in coaching, mentoring, literacy and catering. A full programme is posted on our website and given to students each term. Our programme includes access to several community groups such as The Track Academy, MG Stars Gymnastics, Community Table Tennis and Brent Schools’ football.
Our Enrichment programme enables our students to become fully embedded in our school community. All of our students are given the opportunity to compete in a vast programme of competitions ranging from sporting events to timestable rockstars.
We look forrard to introducing our students to a multitude of exciting new experiences here at Capital City Academy.
