Introduction

All students take part in enrichment. A structured programme of activities takes place on Wednesday afternoons, providing an excellent opportunity to develop leadership, organisational and interpersonal skills. Enrichment features arts, drama, ICT, languages, the option to gain qualifications, sports and voluntary work. Some students also choose to use the time to gain specific work experience or return to their own secondary school, or visit local primary schools to work as teaching assistants.

These activities bring Year 12 and Year 13 students together to improve their personal and academic skills and provide additional skills and opportunities to add to CV’s and personal statements which are attractive to employers and university admission officers.

A full list of the opportunities on offer is provided prior to the start of each term. See the link below to find out about current opportunities. Please note that this is subject to change at the start of each academic year.

The enrichment programme also includes a series of visiting speakers and lecturers who are invited to talk to students about aspects of university life, employment and personal development.
