Enterprise and Activity Week is the culmination of the school year at Gosforth Academy. It is a week where staff and students alike focus on enrichment.
We have an array of activities taking place at different locations. Whether students want to become a film critic, develop their football skills, win the Great Gosforth Bake-Off, be a musical star, learn poker from the sharpest minds in the business then that can all be achieved right here on the school site. Those venturing further afield have the choice of surfing at Tynemouth, honing golf skills at Parklands, visiting the wonderful museums and galleries of Newcastle/Gateshead with the art department, developing fitness at Eldon Leisure, testing their outdoor skills in the Lake District and contributing to the local area with volunteering opportunities alongside our school partners.
Finally, this week represents an opportunity to take an overseas trip which develops students’ independence skills as well as seeing what other cultures have to offer. In recent years the school has run Yellow Week trips to: Berlin, Normandy, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Beijing.
