At The De La Salle Academy, we know that for our boys to be successful in the wider areas of their lives and in the future, they need to be provided with rich opportunities to develop their cultural capital. Cultural capital is the combination of behaviours, knowledge and skills that a learner can draw upon, and which demonstrates their cultural awareness, knowledge and competence; it is one of the key ingredients a student will rely upon to be successful in society, their career and the world of work.

Taking this into consideration, as a directorate, we have developed our schemes of work to encourage learners to be more aware of the places and communities they come from, to be taught about the rich cultural heritage of Liverpool and the North West, to take inspiration from local areas and those from further afield, and to establish a strong sense of identity and emotional wellbeing. This is also achieved through the extra curricular activities on offer, such as young Lasallians, cyber-discovery, cooking and art clubs and also trips both local and abroad.
