At Ark Soane, we equip students with both education and character. To be the drivers of their own destinies, we know there is more to success than academic achievement alone. Education isn’t simply about passing exams.

All students at Soane take part in Enrichment once a week as part of the school day. They select from a broad range of extra-curricular activities, working towards a project at the end of each term presented to our wider community. Taking place in smaller groups than regular lessons, Enrichment allows students to develop new interests and gain knowledge to widen their access to university, careers, and pathways of their choice. It is a joyous part of the week, where every single student learns about something they have expressed a clear interest in. This helps them to make more informed decisions when it comes to GCSE & A Level options, university choices, and other pathways.

Our current enrichment offer includes emergency first aid, sustainability, chess, samba drumming, introductory Japanese and Arabic, and many more. This will be expanded and developed as we continue to grow, making use of staff expertise, volunteers, and third parties where meaningful projects or opportunities present themselves.

If you have any questions about enrichment, or if there is an enrichment you would like to see us run, please email Harry Morgan via info@arksoane.org
