Enrichment

At Three Rivers Academy we offer an enrichment programme that gives our students the opportunity to be involved in activities outside of timetabled lessons.  We have a wide range of opportunities including but not limited to competitive and non-competitive sports, creative and performing arts, leadership roles and student voice alongside subject trips (COVID allowing).  We also take advantage of online opportunities to bring experts into our classrooms.  There really is something for every student to take part in.

Extra-Curricular Opportunities

Student can embrace their artistic side though creative writing, school productions, art exhibitions and musical performances. These not only offer the chance to participate in one of their interests, but also to share the fantastic outcomes with the wider community. The annual art exhibition at the Riverside Barn in Walton-On-Thames is very popular with local residents and the annual school shows are well attended. One to one music tuition is offered for a wide selection of instruments and the performing arts department trips to a variety of theatre performances. Competing in “Explosion”, our school dance show, the national “Rock Challenge” and other competitions also allow our students to showcase their talents.

Throughout the year the school organises activities to give the students the opportunity to explore new skills, investigate significant local, national or global events, learn about important issue of safety, understand mental health issues or delve deeper into subjects that they are studying.

To inspire a lifelong love of sport and physical activity and a sense of community, all Year 9 students have the opportunity to complete the Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award and we offer the Silver Award as an enrichment opportunity for Key Stage 4 students.  This allows all students to become involved regardless of ability.

Currently we have daily rehearsals for our latest show which is open to all whether a future star of the stage or a backstage engineer.  We encourage all students to join in this opportunity to show their talents.

Our KS4 and 5 student leaders together with our subject teachers offer KS3 clubs that have a variety of purposes.  They could be to experience a wider view of the subject or to gain support for studies.

Student Leadership

Student Ambassadors

Students in Years 10 through to 13 apply to become student subject ambassadors to represent a subject to the rest of the student body.  Possible activities the students will be responsible for are running clubs for younger students, mentoring younger students, feeding back to staff regarding lesson content, supporting staff in producing resources to celebrate subject areas and representing the subject in events such as Open Evening.

Prefects

Students in Years 10 through to 13 apply to become prefects and as part of this they decide on an area of the school community to support.  Areas that are currently projects for our cohort include mental health, water safety, building motivation, girls in sport, Year 7 transition, primary school liaison, debating, clubs and environmental and eco.  The projects these students are undertaking will be a positive influence for Three Rivers Academy and their enthusiasm will bring about change for our whole community.

Student voice

Student voice is a key component of day-to-day life at Three Rivers Academy, and we believe passionately in ‘listening and reacting’ to the views and wishes of the student body and to empowering our students to help direct policy.

Each tutor group nominates two students to represent their views on the year council, a student led body (with the support of the year leader) that meets once a half term to discuss all elements of school life from rewards and consequences to school uniform.

In addition, two chairs of each year council then forward the views and wishes of their year group to the whole school council that meets once a term with a member of the senior leadership team and our sixth form student leaders.

The impact of the year and school councils is wide reaching and has already influenced the school buildings, school uniform, behaviour policy and teaching and learning.
