Working with the Community

Enrichment lessons are an essential part of a balanced and exciting education which develops highly desired employability skills. All students participate in an extensive range of opportunities built into the extended school day from 3.40pm until 4.45pm.

Each student has the freedom to develop his or her interests and skills through the highest quality provision, provided without additional cost. We offer an extensive programme which provides a variety of creative, sporting, social and academic opportunities throughout the school year, some of which lead to well known qualifications such as LAMDA exams and the Duke of Edinburgh Award.

We offer both team and individual sports coaching and competition and provide the opportunity to compete against other schools in regular sporting fixtures.

Our programmes, both at key stages 3 and 4, are explicitly linked to ten employability skills, enabling students to develop a wide range of skills throughout their time at Nottingham Free School. Enrichment will be a thread that continues into our Post 16 provision.

We deliver a comprehensive range of additional educational activities, which supports classroom learning and provides wider intellectual and academic growth. This will includes links with universities, external providers and educational trips.
