Nottingham University Samworth Academy offers a comprehensive programme of extracurricular activities enabling students to extend their learning beyond the classroom.
We pride ourselves on the extensive enrichment programme we provide for all students. We are keen for as many students to be involved as possible, as we believe that opportunities beyond the classroom can boost their confidence to interact socially with others; extend their social networks and provide them with new – or improved – skills and abilities. Above all, enrichment offers an important space for students to have fun and relax, and challenge themselves to achieve things they might not have thought were possible. This can lead to improved mental and physical health and wellbeing.
Enrichment allows students to create memories that last a lifetime and develop character to complement their academic achievements. It is widely acknowledged that participation in enrichment activities can provide students with the edge over competitors when applying for education or employment beyond Year 11. Additionally, enrichment can provide both additional support and an escape from the demands of the academic curriculum in which students work so hard.
