At Rossington All Saints Academy we offer a range of enrichment opportunities for our students. This gives students the chance to continue learning or to further a passion they may have once the school day finishes. A few of the clubs on offer this term are STEM club, which involves completing several different science experiments, computer science programming and engineering projects. Dungeons and Dragons club where students use their imagination and creativity to create a journey for their character. We also run a maths homework club, to give students the chance to get help on their homework using Sparx or Hegarty Maths.
We also offer a range of PE enrichment clubs, these include boys’ and girls’ football, badminton, basketball and table tennis. Our PE enrichment clubs have also led to a number of our students representing the Academy in regional and national competitions. Last year our Y7/8 and 9 boys football teams made an excellent start to their season by going unbeaten in their first three games. Our KS3 and KS4 badminton team qualified for the Doncaster finals with our KS4 team finishing 2nd. The girls football team also had a successful start to their season and were quarter finalists in the under 13s EFL cup.
Our clubs are usually extremely popular with 316 students attending enrichment at some point last year.
For 2022-23 we have a new enrichment programme with lots on offer for everyone. The full timetable is below.
This year at Rossington All Saints Academy in STEM club will be looking at different themes; starting with a look at Forces, building and testing catapults, looking at the aerodynamics of aeroplanes and testing different designs to prevent damage to an egg! We will also look at volcanoes and how they are formed, while this half-term we are going to be investigating whether students could survive a zombie apocalypse!
In addition to STEM club last year, Rossington All Saints went on several STEM trips! Students have had the pleasure of going to the Deep in Hull, an aquarium where students learn all about the world’s oceans and their inhabitants. Recently, Y9 students were also able to visit Magna for a day taking part in STEM discussions, investigating careers and interacting with scientists, inventors and engineers.
