AAA Programme

Leaders ensure that all pupils, including those with SEND, benefit from the wide range of additional opportunities on offer. Pupils experience different environments and challenges, and learn about topics related to the curriculum- Ofsted 2023

The AAA programme aims to offer students the opportunities to develop an experience of a wider curriculum through a number of challenges to support students’ aspirations. It aims to help them attain high levels of progress that will open opportunities for their futures. The programme is targeted at those students who are on a pathway to achieve three A grades at A level and on to university, or into the top apprenticeships. However it is an inclusive programme and is open to all students who show a commitment to their learning and engage in the activities on offer.

The programme revolves around different and diverse challenges and has been designed to develop skills and knowledge in areas outside of the normal curriculum focus. Tasks will vary in subject area, including Communication (English and Languages), STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths), Humanities (History, Geography and Religious Studies) and Enterprise to name but a few.

These challenges are designed to be completed in the student’s own time which also helps you to build time management skills and independent working.
