At Bournville, we place a great emphasis on character education. That is all the learning that takes place during childhood that is not necessarily academic.
Our ambition in the academy is to enrich lives and transform futures for our students. We believe in students developing their characters through participating fully in school life. Not just by fully engaging in lessons, but by becoming involved in the many competitions and clubs offered by the academy. We believe that this is important.
Participating in extra curricular activities helps students to develop skills and qualities that they may not in academic subjects. It helps students develop physically, mentally and socially.
Whilst there is currently a focus on Y11 students completing their period 6 sessions, there are still plenty of opportunities. We encourage all students to get involved with at least one activity each term.
