Enriching our students’ lives
Our extended curriculum is a central part of Archer Academy life. All Archer students take part in enrichment activities at the end of the formal school day on a Tuesday and Thursday, to enable them to learn important skills that help them in and beyond their lessons and to discover their hidden talents and passions.
Year 7 and Year 8 students begin each term with an Enrichment Fair, during which they have the opportunity to meet with our different enrichment tutors and find out about all of the courses on offer. Students make a Tuesday choice and a Thursday choice for each term.
From Year 9 onwards, the programme becomes more tailored, with students spending one session on an Academic & Vocational activity and another on a Leadership & Employability activity. These provide students with the opportunity to take accredited courses, learn practical skills and gain some work experience within a fun, team-based environment.
