We believe that enrichment plays a vital role in nurturing our students’ interests and talents. The enrichment activities on offer help to develop character, resilience, confidence and independence. Additionally, it teaches our students how to keep physically and mentally healthy.
We have a varied enrichment programme – from sports and STEM (Science, Technology, English and Maths) to the performing and creative arts, there is something on offer for almost every student. Additionally we run a homework club for students who need a little extra support completing their homework tasks.
Our enrichment programme changes from term to term – follow the link below to view the current programme of after school clubs.

During the last week of term, the usual timetable is suspended for 2-3 days for years 7-10 students.
Year 10 students take part in either Work Experience (for the whole week) or careers focussed days, which includes sessions from external speakers, companies and universities, activities on Unifrog and visits to local universities.
Year 7-9 students take part in curriculum days, undertaking fun activities with a focus on specific subjects. Examples of our curriculum days include:
- Creative Arts Day – a series of workshops in art, dance, drama and music experiencing the arts in ways not usually encountered during the normal curriculum, such as hip hop dancing, Taiko drumming, puppetry and illustrative drawing
- Humanities Day – looking at the world of chocolate from historical, geographical and ethical perspectives
- PE Day – taster sessions of a variety of different sports and physical activities
Some of our curriculum days include a complimentary trip to experience the subject and in school activities in an alternative way.
