Enrichment Options Autumn 2023
We are delighted to launch the Autumn Term enrichment programme, which will run from Monday 18th September – Friday 8th December 2023.
What is enrichment?
In addition to their weekly timetabled lessons, students at KAA are also offered an extensive programme of enrichment designed to stretch their thinking, broaden their horizons and teach them more about the world.
Despite there being an academic focus to some of the sessions, the primary goal of enrichment is for students to enjoy learning and to love spending time at school. Enrichment, for many students, supports their social and emotional needs, allowing them the confidence to build friendships, to focus on their future and to grow as individuals. It also ensures students are kept healthy through sporting and active sessions. Students will get to try out sports and activities that they may never have come across before. They will also get the chance to compete with other students, tutor groups, houses and schools, thus promoting healthy competition and team work.
It is non-compulsory but we encourage all students to choose at least one enrichment per term. We expect all students to show INTREPIDUS in their Enrichment choices. Intrepidus means students push themselves to do new things and take risks in a safe environment.
When does enrichment take place?
Enrichment takes place Monday to Friday, from 4pm to 4.45pm Monday to Thursday or 3pm to 3.45pm on Fridays (unless otherwise stated in the registration form).
The Autumn term enrichment programme will run from Monday 18th September – Friday 8th December 2023. There will be no enrichment on Thursday 28th September, Thursday 12th October and Thursday 16th November due to our Open Evenings and Sixth Form Parents’ Evening on these dates.
Which enrichments are on the timetable this term?
The presentation below explains more about each enrichment on offer, including a full timetable. Parents can look through this with their child at home, but form tutors will also share this information with their class at school.
How can my child register for enrichment?
To register your child for enrichment, they must fill in the registration form below by Tuesday 12th September. Please fill in the personal details section carefully to ensure that you get the clubs that you sign up for. If your child is in Year 7 and does not know their KAA email address they will have an opportunity to register during tutor time on Monday 11th or Tuesday 12th September at school.
