Broadening pupils’ horizons
We encourage and support all our pupils to pursue new sporting, academic and extra-curricular adventures during their time at Millbank Academy.
Our Education Enrichment programme is fully embedded in the curriculum, as well as being offered within the extended school day, so that children's interests can be pursued eagerly. Visiting speakers and staff support the programme, as do regular trips to places of interest.
In Reception and Nursery, we focus on our local community and environment, with visits to places of significance around London. The curriculum programme continues in Years 1 and 2, but we also encourage children to attend a range of after-school sporting and extra-curricular pursuits. Millbank has a long history of winning tournaments locally due to our competitive before and after school coaching! Our longer school day enables us to respond to pupils' individual aspirations by establishing a programme, both on and off site, to nurture their curiosity and enthusiasm.
In Key Stage 2, all of our children learn to play instruments in small groups. They are offered the chance to participate in residential visits with the Outward Bound Trust and go on a wide range of visits to theatres, galleries and museums throughout their time at the school.
We offer a wide range of after school clubs, from chess to football, to develop children's blossoming interests and talents.
Learning to be change-makers
We help pupils to recognise their responsibilities to the community and the environment.
We introduce them to charitable work at an early age, providing opportunities to think intelligently about fundraising and giving. We encourage children to be very active in raising both money and awareness.
We also help pupils to understand local social issues and global challenges, and to see how they can become the change-makers and leaders who make a real difference
