Many of the skills that our students will need to be successful in adult life are also developed outside the classroom, through our enrichment programme.
This focusses on the soft skills valued by employers and universities, such as teamwork, communication, independence, problem solving, mentoring, and organisational skills. It also encourages students to make a positive contribution to the school and local communities.
Our enrichment programme includes a wide range of opportunities including supporting younger students through peer reading programmes, helping organise and run subject specific clubs, being ambassadors for the school and subject areas, participating in the Duke of Edinburgh Programme, charity fundraising activities, environmental projects, and running sports activities for primary school students.
