"It is really inspiring to see over 40 Year 7s from 7:30am on what are usually cold and rainy Wednesday mornings. Their dedication amazes me and it makes me so proud to be part of this wonderful initiative. It is so important because we are giving the students the time, space and expertise to develop their skills in areas which are beyond our school curriculum. It is not just extra-curricular, it is supra-curricular. This means that students are taking their learning further. The Academy has links with University College at the University of Oxford, who have emphasised the importance of students being involved in supra-curricular activities. They say that when they interview students, they look for involvement in such activities, which show a student's passion for their subject and an ability to study independently, outside of their normal lessons. Delta 3 Club is a perfect opportunity for students to be challenged, stretched and inspired."
