Enrichment/Personal Development

At St Matthias Academy we encourage students to develop interests in a range of non-academic activities and skills. Trying something new can be a challenge for many of our students, but it is a great way to develop confidence and build relationships outside of friendship groups.

WOW Enrichment sessions take place two afternoons per week and students can choose from a variety of options that they would like to participate in for a term. They then have the opportunity to develop their interests further in the following term or can choose a new option.

Options offered change frequently but have included:

  • Boxing
  • Baking
  • Music production
  • Arts & Crafts
  • Ju-jitsu

Numbers per group are limited depending on the activity offered. First choice goes to the students with the highest attendance.
