Northampton Academy Enrichment

Enrichment is a very important part of the Northampton Academy experience, ensuring students have the opportunity to develop new skills, talents and character outside their formal learning environment. We offer a wealth of clubs including music, drama, sports, gaming and reading. The calendar changes termly so please see the latest one below.

At Northampton Academy we promise leadership opportunities for every student, many of which come from the wide range clubs on offer. 

Regular attendance to clubs and activities is necessary for student development both academically as well as emotionally and socially.  Please ensure that if your child has chosen to attend a club that they attend regularly. If they are unable to attend for a week, they should notify the staff member in charge so they will be aware of their absence. Timetable available to view and download below.

Nucleus STEM Lecture Programme 

Working with our university partners, we have put together a series of lectures to run throughout the year, offering the opportunity for students to engage with experts from a range of institutions to discuss various aspects of STEM subjects.  These lectures are open to all students at Northampton Academy and students from other schools (subject to booking).

All the lectures below will take place between 3.30pm and 4.30pm.  Refreshments will be provided for all students attending and will allow some of our older year group to get a taste of what university lectures are like.

Character Enrichment Clubs and Challenges

I am pleased to announce Character Enrichment Clubs and Challenges will formally begin after half term at Northampton Academy.  As a school of character, students will have the opportunity to practise and strengthen every character value, in order to build towards a flourishing future.

In the attached timetable, you will find Character Enrichment Clubs and Challenges associated with a set of four character traits; moral, performative, intellectual or civic values that will be developed each session.  Students can choose these opportunities based on the values they would most like to enhance. 

Character Enrichment Challenges will be available to complete online on the Teams Character Enrichment group, which will be live next term.  Character Challenges can be completed at any time and submitted to  Online Character Enrichment Clubs will also be accessible on the same Teams group.

In order to book a place for your child on their chosen Character Enrichment Clubs, we ask that you register interest for your child via a booking link that will be sent through a new platform named Evolve, by Thursday 22nd October.  Guidance for this is available to download below or by clicking here >>>.  Once you have registered interest, your place will be confirmed by Friday 30th October and their attendance will be recorded for the term.

Character Enrichment Clubs held in school will be in line with the school’s risk assessment as related to Covid-19, which is freely available on our website.  This is to ensure the safety of our students. We hope your child seeks as many opportunities as they wish, to enrich their character.
