Enrichment & Partnerships

Enrichment is an important part of life at Malcolm Arnold Prep.

As a David Ross Education Trust academy we believe that enrichment can help to raise academic standards, enhance performance and teach life skills that will equip our pupils for an ever-changing world.

Primary enrichment gives students the chance to participate in activities that supplement learning and enable them to broaden their skills and experiences, identify talent and enhance it.

Activities include visual and performing arts, including dance, drama and music. There is also a focus on art, sport, outward bound and developing life skills.

What sort of skills does enrichment teach?

  • Determination to succeed
  • Teamwork
  • Winning and losing with grace
  • Respect for others
  • Tolerance
  • Confidence in yourself
  • A sense of fun and enjoyment
  • Creativity
  • Focus and attitude
  • Health benefits

Academies across the Trust are encouraged to work collaboratively to make the most of the opportunities on offer. Highlights from last year include:

  • A Big Sing led by Opera North
  • 14 of our primary schools participated in the Shakespeare Schools Festival.
  • 6 of our primary schools worked with The Northern Ballet, this involved a trip to see a production and several workshops.
  • Several of our Northamptonshire schools developed partnerships with The Royal & Derngate Theatre and The Corby Cube.
