Personal Development 'Enrichment’ 2021-2022 

At Samuel Ward Academy we believe that enrichment is a right, not a privilege. Enrichment is a core part of our curriculum and this is why we are dedicating curriculum time to this. 

We are delighted to introduce this year’s Personal Development Enrichment Programme for Year 7 – Year 11 students. This will be a one-hour super-curricular experience per fortnight, on Wednesday period 5 in week B. We are offering an array of experiences including creative, cultural, environmental, and physical and emotional well-being activities (see brochure).

All activities will be appropriate for ages 11-16 as groups will be vertical (mixed year groups). This is an excellent opportunity to try something new, and broaden your horizons. Please take your time to read through the experiences on offer.

Completion of choices 

You will choose 3 enrichment activities to be experienced throughout the academic year. The order you experience these in will depend on the popularity of the activity. You will also need to select 2 reserve activities to allow for some flexibility in this provision (5 choices in total). These options will be selected on Wednesday 14th July 2021 - details will be provided by tutors.

Oversubscription and undersubscription 
If a club is oversubscribed, students may need to undertake a second choice. If a club is undersubscribed, the club may not run and students may be allocated one of their reserve choices.
