Enrichment Programme

Autumn 2019

“I have come that you may have life, and have it in all its fullness.” John 10:10


At Ark Burlington Danes Academy, we are driven by the core

belief of our vision that all of our young people be able to live

their lives to its fullest, and that they can go on to make the

world a better place. Our enrichment programme enables our

students to develop and deepen existing interests, or stoke their

passion for something new. Each of our clubs supports in the

development of our key Christian values:

FAITH LOVE COMMITMENT COMPASSION

RESILIENCE COURAGE LEADERSHIP

With over fifty different enrichment clubs available, there is

plenty to choose from, and certainly something for everyone’s

interests.

To help you to decide what new and exciting opportunities you

would like to participate in, here are the different categories of

enrichment we have available for you this term and the values

you can demonstrate:

Our World – Be Kind

Sport and Games – Aim High

Cerebral – Keep Learning

Creative Arts – Be Brave

The next page shows you our full, weekly enrichment timetable.

The pages which follow throughout this booklet give some more

detail about each of our exciting clubs.


Our World

Be Kind

Burlington Danes’ “Our World” enrichment clubs enable

our students to both learn more and take a more socially

active role in the world around us.

Our array of language clubs enables us to develop a

compassion for other cultures, whilst our social action

club allows us the chance to show our love for the others

in our community by actively helping those less fortunate

than us.

Creative Arts

Be Brave

Our “creative arts” enrichment clubs encompass a range

of individual a group based activities which enable

Burlington Danes’ students to flourish through the selfexpression

provided by the arts. Students who participate

in the creative arts show courage through their

willingness to take on big challenges, and great resilience

in working hard to perfect their craft. We are fortunate to

have such a large number of talented artists, and are

proud that our students are able to share their talent in a

wide array of showcases and performances.

Cerebral

Keep Learning

Our “cerebral” enrichment clubs are the perfect

opportunity to show commitment to learning, both

beyond the curriculum in academic subjects, and more

widely at issues and topics that aren’t studied until

undergraduate level.

Teaching staff are able to share their academic interests,

and are proud to see the commitment to learning develop

in our students.

Wider Opportunities

Alongside the formal weekly clubs, Ark Burlington Danes is fortunate to

work alongside a number of external providers to ensure students’

interests are fully developed and we can make the most that our

wonderful city has to offer. This includes trips to museums and places

of interest, alongside structured programmes working with universities

and various multinational companies. You will be contacted by letter as

and when such enrichment opportunities arise.

In addition to the formal club and enrichment opportunities listed, we

also have number of spaces available to our students before and after

school, as well as at lunchtime:

The KS3&4 library is open from 8.00 – 16.30 each day for students to complete

homework, read or use the computers to help with academic study.

The Chapel is open on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday at lunchtime for

discussion, prayer or quiet contemplation. We also have a Muslim prayer room (19)

available at lunchtime every day.

Sanctuary is available every lunchtime for those students who would benefit from

a quieter space at lunchtime. You can eat your lunch, read, play games and chat to

friends. Speak to Ms Schulkes if you are interested in going along.

Intervention and homework help sessions are available in most subjects. Yr11

students have a formal programme of intervention based on their current data, and

about which parents have previously been contacted.
