Edward Heneage Primary Academy

It is our intention to ignite a real love of learning by providing a rich, varied and exciting curriculum that meets the needs of each and every individual.


Enrichment is an important part of daily life at Edward Heneage.

As a David Ross Education Trust academy, we believe that enrichment can help to raise academic standards, enhance performance and teach life skills that will equip our pupils for an ever-changing world.

Primary enrichment gives students the chance to participate in activities that supplement learning and enable them to broaden their skills and experiences, identify talent and enhance it.

Activities include visual and performing arts, including dance, drama and music. There is also a focus on art, sport, outward bound and developing life skills.

There are currently a number of clubs and activities for your child to attend. 

There is something at Edward Heneage Primary Academy for everyone.  

New clubs are introduced at the beginning of each term. You can sign up for these on MCAS. 

We have a variety of after-school clubs on offer. 

Currently for the Autumn and Spring Terms, Miss Cook has multiple sports clubs available focusing on skills to become competition ready and identifying those children to represent Edward Heneage at fantastic sporting events DRET have to offer.  

We also have a newly opened gardening club with the children developing a new allotment with Miss Steedman, this is open to all ages.  

Mrs Morley is also recruiting for new vocalists to join the choir and many other fantastic opportunities such as the DRET Christmas Service at Grimsby Minster and the DRET music festival. The choir meets on a Friday.
