At Merritts Brook, we value the importance of learning beyond the classroom. As such, we offer a range of rich and broad activities which enable our pupils to learn and practise skills which will prepare them for later life.

Forest School –

Learning beyond the classroom…

Can you guess which historical period we are looking at?

Special visitors are always welcome – Ash Randall – World Record Holding football freestyler.

We provide a range of opportunities for visitors to visit the Academy or for pupils to go on educational visits outside of the Academy. These are linked to the learning which takes place in each year group and children will make use of the educational visits in their subsequent learning.

In the summer term, we also offer a residential visit to all our year 6 pupils to provide them with an opportunity to learn social skills, experience living in a different location, develop confidence and self-esteem, build independence and resilience. This experience forms part of the transition work which takes place, preparing pupils for their transition to secondary school.

We also visit different places of worship throughout the school; providing pupils with opportunities to see how different religions and faiths worship and developing pupils mutual respect and tolerance of those with and without religious faith.

Immersive learning!

Musical opportunities such as drumming and ukulele take place regularly across school. We enjoy experiences such as the CBSO and KES Outreach to grow our cultural knowledge and experience base.

Museum trips, artists and residence and a bespoke art curriculum.

A wide range of extra curricular clubs will restart in September including:

Football, multi-skills, homework club, computing, British Sign Language, Breakfast Club, Art Club, Computing club, Lego club and Gardening club.
