Enrichment & Partnerships

Students at Bobby Moore Academy will benefit from world-class opportunities. 

In the last year alone, across the David Ross Education Trust our students have travelled the globe as part of amazing enrichment experiences. They have worked with eminent lawyers, performed with the opera and seen their work displayed in a public art gallery. 


With the support of scholarships and bursaries we have witnessed our students excel in the arts, music and sport. 


Some of the nation's greatest sporting stars have inspired our athletes at talent days, masterclasses and events. 

Our students had the opportunity to meet Team GB and we were delighted to celebrate the first DRET Olympian. 


Here are some of the highlights: 

  • Outward Bound trips in the UK and Canada
  • An ecological conservation project in the Caribbean
  • Strong links with the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge and support with interview preparation 
  • Higher education fairs, masterclasses and residentials at the University of Nottingham 
  • Scholarships and bursaries to support academic, creative and sporting talents 
  • Visits to the National Portrait Gallery, Sotheby's and Christie's 
  • Talent days and Trust-wide events with the nation's sporting greats including: Lord Coe, Rebecca Adlington, Colin Jackson and Beth Tweddle
  • Masterclasses with James Cracknell, Austin Healey and many of our greatest Team GB athletes
