Enrichment

We never lose focus on educational excellence, but our pupils benefit academically, personally and socially from a rich and rounded educational experience. Our enrichment and extra-curricular activities help all pupils develop the skills and characteristics that will provide a solid foundation for all aspects of their lives as future business, professional and community leaders.

Our enrichment programme helps our students develop into rounded individuals and enhances key personal skills and aptitudes which are much sought-after by employers. These include oral communication, personal effectiveness, entrepreneurship, self-actualisation, problem-solving and enhanced emotional intelligence.
Enrichment is aimed at:

  • Increasing enjoyment
  • Providing challenge and developing independent learning in gifted and talented students

  • Finding innovative ways to bring our Leadership specialism to life

Enrichment includes:

  • Clubs and societies
  • Faculty based trips and outdoor learning opportunities
  • Carefully selected external facilitators working with students
