Enrichment at Ormiston Denes Academy is about enhancing opportunities for our students to develop themselves beyond what is required of them by the national curriculum and motivate them to enjoy new forms of learning.
Through the wealth of activities on offer we ensure that every student has the opportunity to discover and develop existing and new talents and interests as well as reminding them that learning can be fun.
Enrichment is about balancing the learning experience of the ‘whole child’, ensuring that our students not only perform well academically but that they improve their independent learning skills so that when they leave the academy they do so with the ability to enjoy and continue their learning journey.
Enrichment is about equipping our students for the future.

Our Deputy Head Boy and Deputy Head Girl worked with Mr Bown (Vice Principal), and Tina Ellis (Chair of the governors’ co-curricular sub-committee) to adapt the Ormiston Charter for enrichment so it was appropriate for our students. A group comprising governors, staff and students agreed our priorities for all students at the academy. The result of this meeting of minds was the Ormiston Denes Academy Enrichment Charter, which is available to read in full here. Over their five year journey through the academy, our aim is to fulfill this charter for every one of our students.
