Welcome to Community Learning at Ormiston Victory Academy
At Victory, we know that extra-curricular activities really matter to families and we want to offer your child special opportunities to try out new sports and hobbies during their time with us.
We also realised how enjoyable these activities can be if they become ‘family learning’ – we are parents ourselves and we know how hard it is to find quality time to connect, so last year we began a series of ‘Parent and Child’ classes. Of course, these can also involve grandparents and older siblings – we only ask that there is always a child enrolled as part of the ‘twosome’.
Our Parent and Child classes have included courses like Beauty, Bird-Box Making, Astronomy, Mandarin and Ceramics – but we are always looking for new ideas. They usually span one half-term, so they include around 6 sessions.
We do not charge for these sessions because we believe they have a positive impact on your child’s engagement with the academy and enjoyment of their education – we know these two things matter: it is impossible to secure excellent academic achievement without dedication and support from both parents and teachers alike.
Community Learning Classes – Autumn 1 (2017/18)
We hope you take advantage of the opportunities listed below:
CERAMICS & PAINTING
Choose to dabble in either ceramics or painting. Learn how to create your own object in clay or enjoy developing new painting skills and techniques while creating a masterpiece!
Study the sun, moon, stars, planets, comets, gas, galaxies, gas, dust and other non-Earthly bodies and phenomena. Enjoy the course for pleasure, or take a GCSE at the end of the year.
