Students at Ark Boulton Academy have access to a wide variety of enrichment activities that not only enhance academic learning but widen horizons, providing new experiences and opportunities and increasing aspirations. 

Each year we hold six Enrichment Days. On these days we bring the whole school together to try new experiences and develop students’ future study and career aspirations. 

We also offer a full programme of after-school activities and as an Ark school, we can offer experiences that wouldn’t otherwise be available to students. For example, every year students from Ark Boulton will travel to London to take part in a special music gala at the Barbican Arts Centre in London. As well as making school life more enjoyable, enrichment gives students the confidence, skills and experience to succeed in the future.

Ark Boulton clubs include sports clubs, library club, journalism club and creative arts clubs. You can see a full timetable here: PDF iconEnrichment Timetable 2018
