At Ark Bentworth Primary Academy we recognise the importance of learning beyond the classroom, and supporting pupils to develop enquiry skills and knowledge about their local area and the world around them. To ensure that we provide pupils with a wide range of experiences we organise a number of educational visits and school trips throughout the year.


School Trips

We believe that our pupils benefit from visiting places of interest and having representatives from various organisations and other specialists visit the school. These experiences will link to the subjects/themes that the children are learning.


After School Clubs

Children will be able to participate in a range of enrichment clubs from 3:30pm to 4:30pm. These clubs vary each term. Please contact the school for an up to date list.

Staff enrichment clubs are free but require a £5 deposit which is returned at the end of each term when a new clubs list is issued. They include:

  • Choir
  • Sculpture
  • Gardening
  • Writing
  • Reading Club
  • Sewing Club
  • Football
  • School Prep Club

We also have QPR multi-skills and Big Foot Arts.  Please check the office for prices on these.


The B Club (After School Care)

Creates formal school based and play activities for children from 4 1/2 to 11 years old.  The play centre operates daily from 3.15pm - 5.15pm and includes an healthy snack.  The cost is £3.00 per day.  Please contact the school for a registration from.


Breakfast Club

From 8.00am the children are welcome to attend Breakfast Club.  This is free as long as you pre-book, otherwise the cost is £1 per day.  Activities will be provided to stimulate their thinking skills alongside a healthy breakfast meal. The children will be expected to follow the breakfast club rules and work with others on a range of activities and games.


Walking Bus

We have two walking bus routes per morning. The walking bus is supervised by members of staff.  Children and adults wear high visibility jackets.  Please enquire at the office for pick up routes and times.


Independent Learning

Every child from year 1 upwards will receive an independent learning folder. This will provide parents and pupils with all the guidance they need to engage in some independent study.

Inside the folder is a submission date and more information about what pupils and parents can expect. The folders will be collected on the submission date and any independent work completed will be given a grade.

The homework focus includes: Whole Class Projects, Termly Class Topic Choice Projects, Reading, Research and Revision (Year 2, 5 and 6), Daily Core Skills Tasks and Computer Based Learning (examples below).
