Extended School Timetable

Make sure your child is getting the most out of school by attending some of the fantastic FREE clubs and activities at lunchtime and after school.

Research shows that young people who take part in out of school activities do better in school and their attainment levels are higher. More than 250 students participate in over 30 activities each week, led by qualified tutors. Our Gospel Choir have performed at the Emirates Stadium, our dancers at Sadlers Wells and our drama students at the Almeida theatre and the Barbican. We have been recognised for this work through a QISS Award (Quality in Study Support) and we believe that participation fosters a sense of community as well as new friendships. We have a Breakfast Club to help students improve their literacy and a range of lunchtime activities run by our Seniors.


Extended School Cultural Trip to Elthorne Peace Garden


Art Club Animation Workshop at the Royal College of Art

Ms. Wood took eleven of her Year 7 & 8 art club students to the RCA for a workshop on stop-frame animation as part of the ReachOutRCA programme.

  

Organised by artist Jasleen Kaur, who worked with us on the Art on the Underground Project, the workshop gave a brief insight into stop-frame animation used in the film industry before getting down to practical work in creating 2D backgrounds followed by claymation figures.

  

The students then used cameras and animation software to create a brief animation film. It was a wonderful opportunity at one of the country’s top Art colleges.


Cultural Trip to the Southbank

As part of our Extended School and our PSHE, we have been organising cultural trips for groups of students to visit various locations around London.

  

Many of our students feel that, despite living in one of the world’s greatest cities, they don’t get enough opportunities to get out and explore what London has to offer. At Arts & Media School we consider it an important privilege that we are a school in this great city and that our students should be given as many chances as possible to explore it and see it beyond the local boroughs.

For this trip our students went down to the River Thames to walk from St. Paul’s Cathedral, across the Millennium Bridge, along the Southbank taking in the Christmas markets and back to the Strand.


Community Cohesion

As part of our work on community cohesion, we hold additional meetings for Turkish, Bengali and Somali parents with a translator present and offer courses which parents and their children can follow together such as First Aid and ESOL.

We also encourage our students to work within our local community; an inter-generational Cookery Club provides an annual Christmas lunch for Senior Citizens and a Spring Tea Dance; we work extensively with local Primary Schools and house rehearsals for the Islington Youth Theatre.

We develop a sense of responsibility and citizenship through an active programme of charitable support. Awareness-raising projects have included ‘Fairtrade Fortnight’ and a ‘Help for Haiti’ Concert. Year 9 students work on ‘A Year of Giving’; an initiative to encourage students to look outside themselves at the wider world.
