Character development is continued through the academy’s rich comprehensive enrichment programme which includes sport, cultural, creative and other activities. This helps them develop key personal skills and aptitudes such as communication, leadership, team work, and problem-solving that are so sought after by today’s top universities and employers.

Additionally, the academy runs a number of ‘Drop-Down’ days where external agencies are welcomed to the academy to deliver sessions that include advice regarding career choices and mock interviews. We also take utilise these days to support the delivery of PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education).
