Enrichment is an important part of daily life at Huntingdon Academy
Pupils have the opportunity to choose from a range of extra-curricular activities.
Enrichment is a key driver for Huntingdon Academy. We provide a broad range of enrichment opportunities – focused around Sports, the Arts and Culture – as we firmly believe that these opportunities have a number of benefits for our pupils, both academically and personally by broadening their life experiences.
We believe that enrichment can help to raise academic standards, enhance performance and teach life skills that will equip our pupils for an ever-changing world.
Primary enrichment gives students the chance to participate in activities that supplement learning and enable them to broaden their skills and experiences, identify talent and enhance it.
Aside from all the enrichment in the classroom and beyond, we also run a number of exciting clubs. At Huntingdon Academy we offer a wide variety of after school clubs. Each club is designed to support our pupils to master new skills, discover new hobbies and develop their current passions. Each club is led by a member of the Huntingdon team, this provides our pupils with an opportunity to develop a new skill with the support of one of their role models. Our sports clubs are led by our sports leaders: Mr Jenkins, Miss Liley and Miss Hunt.
Every half term, our after-school provision timetable changes, this supports us to provide our pupils with a range of after school activities. Each half term the following subjects are covered: community, sports, STEM and the arts. We encourage our pupils to commit to a half term for each club, as research suggests pupils are most likely to be successful in mastering a new skill if they commit to the skill over a sustained period of time.
At Huntingdon Academy we work closely with the community. During Spring 2 Huntingdon Academy will be welcoming The Pythian Club into school to work closely with our pupils. They will be leading a boxing after school club, where pupils will have the opportunity to exercise and work with an inspiring mentor.
Furthermore, Huntingdon Academy will also be collaborating with Nottingham University in Spring 2. Students from the University of Nottingham will be leading a science after school club.
