Extra-Curricular, Trips & Activities

We pride ourselves on offering a wide range of extra-curricular activities, trips and activities to support pupil's wider development. Class trips typically take place termly, and are based on pupils' curriculum content. All information is sent out via Parent Mail.

Enrichment Opportunities

At Benedict Academy, it is important for us to ensure we are enriching our curriculum with a wide range and variety of experiences for our children and community. We carefully plan out additional opportunities that consolidate or develop further learning, and harness pupils' curiosity and excitement about a unit.

Though these opportunities change slightly based on adaptations made to the provision each year, you will find experiences that have recently, or are currently, taking place at Benedict Academy below:

We provide children with a variety of trips and experiences across the school year. For every educational visit or visitor, we make sure that there is a clear link back to our curriculum, so that the visit consolidates or extends the children's learning. Our core trips are based around History, Geography, Science and RE.


After School Extra-Curricular Activities 

Clubs, classes and creative sessions provide fun ways for children to play, learn new skills and gain fresh experiences. At Benedict, we aim to provide a variety of clubs and activities for our children to access. Throughout the years at Benedict Academy, we have offered a wide range of clubs which our children, parents and staff have requested and suggested.If your child would like to sign up for a club, please contact the office.

Please note that we also have full wraparound provision. This includes a Breakast Club starting from 7:45am, and After School Club lasting until 5:30pm.
