Enrichment Programme

Some people find their passion in the classroom. Others find it beyond the classroom, in activities that range from sport to singing and from acting to adventure. Our Enrichment Programme  is intended to achieve what it says – to enrich student’s lives (and the lives of others) through a choice of over 100 activity sessions per week.


The Aim of the Enrichment Programme

At the heart of our Enrichment Programme is our approach in developing our students so that they are World Ready. The Enrichment Programme offers this in a number of ways:

  • Personal development – taking risks and pushing boundaries, trying something new
  • Personal wellbeing – discovering ways to enhance mental health and wellbeing
  • Community and service – reaching out and helping others
  • Developing useful life skills
  • Career insight – acquiring knowledge or experience linked to a future career students may be considering.
  • Supporting and extending academic studies
  • Developing passions and talents
