Park Lane Academy

Enrichment Overview

Our mission is to ensure that our students are equipped with the passport to success needed to become well rounded British citizens of our community, this ensures our curriculum is much more than a timetable. All subject areas have planned enrichment activities for the academic year, which further stimulate and develop students’ curiosity and passion for a subject.
The academy has recently gained beacon status for the Holocaust, meaning our school will ensure the memory of those is not forgotten whilst engaging in the Jewish community both here and across Europe. 
Our KS3 offer has a huge range of activities, so there is something for everyone within the 26 different clubs.
We are passionate about securing life chances and opportunities for our students, and have created a personal development journey which complements our extra-curricular and enrichment offer. This journey details opportunities which students are encouraged to take to ensure that they understand the importance of learning from mistakes, and build intellectual and emotional resilience. Examples of opportunities include being elected onto our School parliament, being a member of the school cabinet. Wellbeing, literacy and Sports Leaders are all opportunities for students to step out of their comfort zone and find strengths which they didn’t know they had further enhancing the passport to success we strive for them to achieve.
