At Croxley Danes, we believe that extra-curricular activities are extremely important in enthusing and engaging the students whilst broadening their horizons, developing new skills and contributing to students' personal and social development. A range of enrichment activities is available to all Croxley Danes students each day, either at lunch time or after school, complementing the learning which takes place in the more formal curriculum.
During the early years of Croxley Danes School, students will access enrichment activities at St Clement Danes.
The regular, varied and ongoing programme of enrichment activities enables students to widen their experience and develop specific skills. Some of these opportunities are linked to the curriculum whilst others are ‘one-off’ events and visits. Our proposed programme will include:
- drama productions
- field trips
- visiting experts
- interest groups – art, drama, dance etc.
- sports training
- book club; maths investigations; chess; philosophy group
- language classes after school
- enrichment days – temporary suspension of timetable for special activities;
- business and/or community projects
- mini-enterprises and
- enterprise days and events.
All students aged fourteen and over will also have the opportunity of taking part in the Duke of Edinburgh Award programmes to inspire, guide and support them in their self-development.
Students in Key Stages 4 and 5 will also be offered the opportunity to participate in the World Challenge Expedition. In so doing, they will be expected to raise the funds they will require for participation through a combination of a reasonable level of employment and by organising activities for younger students at the school.
During the early years of Croxley Danes School, students will access some enrichment activities at St Clement Danes. In this way, students of both schools will be able to undertake activities together.
The enrichment activities are delivered and supervised by teaching staff and support staff from Croxley Danes and St Clement Danes. Contracted providers will deliver specialist activities, drawing upon existing links with local and national organisations such as the World Challenge Organisation, the National Youth Orchestra, and the Royal Opera House.
