Enrichment

Enrichment is designed to raise the aspirations, achievement and cultural experience of pupils by extending academic study beyond the confines of the curriculum, and by co-ordinating initiatives between subject disciplines.

Pupils are encouraged to learn skills that would not normally be acquired in the classroom, to develop new interests (or existing passions), and gain a stronger sense of how their academic study has a wider relevance.

The Activity programme provides numerous opportunities for academic enrichment (for example the Arts and Clubs) but year group and whole school events are also organised during each term to extend the understanding of pupils in areas of academic study. These take the form of lectures and seminars by visiting speakers, field trips and exchanges.
