Case study | Lord Lawson of Beamish Academy | Community-led Enrichment

Lord Lawson of Beamish Academy’s KS3 Community-Led Enrichment Programme is pivotal in equipping KS3 students with the necessary character skills, such as tolerance, motivation, resilience and confidence for life beyond school.
 
The exciting and challenging programme of events is rich in variety and diversity, enjoyed by almost 800 students both on and offsite, for one hour every week. There are over 40 activities (including circus skills, DJing, coding and Karaoke among many others) running. The big difference is - not one of the people leading sessions are teachers. Some of the providers are Academy support staff, most are professionals and experts in their chosen field working in the local community, and two are actually parents of students in the Academy.
 
Learning is active and "hands-on", with students engaging in a carousel of 3 activities under the headings of Community, Creativity or Challenge.
 
Activities are both on/off site, based within the Academy or local community. This has been extremely positive for organisations involved as they have witnessed an increase in participation at their centres from the young people outside of Enrichment sessions and promoted sustainable links for the future. Students interact more with their community, discover their talents and develop skills that prepare them for a wider future than passing exams.
