At The Roundhill Academy we focus not just on the academic progress of students but also those experiences which help with personal development. We call these Enrichment Experiences. We believe that these experiences are so important to the development of young people that we have created an Enrichment Entitlement Statement which commits us to making sure we offer a diverse range of 15 different experiences to all students over their time at Roundhill. We believe that by taking part in all 15 of these experiences, over the course of 5 years whilst at Roundhill, it will not just aid with the academic progression of students but will drastically enhance their personal development.
