Enrichment is an important part of daily life at Lodge Park Academy
Lodge Park has strong links with the other academies in the David Ross Education Trust, and works closely with partners to provide new experiences for students.
We work alongside a number of universities, including the University of Nottingham, to offer exciting enrichment opportunities. The University of Nottingham hosts events and inspirational days for students, educating them on their higher education options and inspiring them to achieve. The universities also help to continuously develop our staff and keep us up-to-date with new teaching methods.
Our academy has also formed a strong partnership with Connexions. They provide important information, advice and guidance to our students, helping them with important decisions about their future career paths.
As a David Ross Education Trust (DRET) academy we believe that enrichment can help to raise academic standards, enhance performance and teach life skills that will equip our students for an ever-changing world.
Secondary enrichment is carefully selected to equip young people with additional experiences and skills that will not only give them a head start in their adult life but also enhance their CVs, applications and interviews in competitive careers and higher education markets.
What sort of skills does enrichment teach?
- Determination to succeed
- Winning and losing with grace
- Respect for others
- Confidence in yourself
- A sense of fun and enjoyment
- Focus and attitude
- Health benefits
The Trust has partnerships with a number of organisations that work with us to provide opportunities in music, drama, art and other cultural pursuits. These activities and events are designed to enhance their academic studies and to provide opportunities that many students may not otherwise have access to.
In addition, we hold regular careers and higher education events to make choosing the next steps easier and clearer for students of all abilities and interests.
Some of the partners with whom we have worked include the Shakespeare Schools Festival, The Kalisher Trust, the University of Nottingham, the Outward Bound Trust and Lincoln Castle, to name a few…
