The extended school day enables the school with the opportunity to provide a weekly enrichment opportunity for all students. Each of the enrichment opportunities offered provides students with tangible outcomes. This could be through the collection of various recognised awards such as the Crest Award, Arts Award, Sport Leaders Awards and Duke of Edinburgh Award or through the participation in regionally or nationally recognised events/competitions.
Although the standard school curriculum is broad, the addition of the weekly enrichment opportunity helps to further broaden student experiences. This enables all students to further pursue any specific interests and develop a portfolio of additional qualifications and experiences, enabling students to become well-rounded young people prepared for modern day society.
The participation in enrichment increases student motivation and engagement in their learning and ensures all students, no matter their background, engage in an enrichment programme. The enrichment programme is a key part of the school equality for all and enrichment for all curriculum ethos.
Each year students are provided with a booklet and select the enrichment option/s they would prefer to follow.
