11 by 11

11 by 11 sets out to provide pupils at Ark Castledown Primary Academy with 11 memorable experiences before they end their primary education. The programme broadens our pupils horizons, providing them with exciting and unique experiences that they would not perhaps normally have access to.

Why are we offering 11 by 11?

We expect great things from our pupils. 11 by 11 is driven by the desire to unleash our pupil’s energy, ambitions and aspirations. We believe that our curriculum should be broad as well as being focussed on providing a high-quality learning experience, providing our pupils with the cultural capital required to succeed in life.

Learning outside the classroom is a tool for teaching and learning which has been proven to raise attainment and achievement, improve behaviour and improve the engagement of all groups of pupils, including those who are hard to engage inside the school building.

The Ark Castledown Learning for Life values are at the forefront of these 11 enriching learning experiences.

How is 11 by 11 funded?

All of the 11 by 11 experiences are fully funded and do not require parental contributions to be made. This ensures all pupils will equally benefit from this enrichment programme.
