Enrichment is an important part of our students' development - universities and employers want fully rounded individuals to join them. We offer a range of enrichment opportunities to our students.
Paired Reading: a group of year 12 and 13 students dedicate their free time to helping younger students improve their reading.
Subject support: some students go into lessons to support younger students in lessons such as Maths, Geography and Computing. Such enrichment helps those students who want to go into education.
Young Enterprise: in the last two years, we have developed two very strong Young Enterprise teams. In 2014, our team reached the Regional final with their Vinyl Bowls, and in 2015 the team won the Best Business man and Best Entrepreneur at the Huntingdon finals. We are looking forward to what 2016 has to offer!
Work Experience: many of our students attend high quality work experience which will help them with their future careers. Our students have attended weekly work experience at local primary schools, businesses and industry, and all have found the experience worthwhile. Some of our students have secured employment or apprenticeships through the work experience they have completed.
Charity events: many of out students are keen to raise money for charity, whether it is through the running of The Event, organising cake sales or wearing a Christmas Jumper.
Trips: in the last two years we have been on some exciting adventures. In June 2014, twenty students went to Ghana to volunteer- they built schools, painted murals and taught young children. In July 2015 a group of students visited New York and had an amazing time seeing the Empire State Building, Times Square and the Statue of Liberty. It is not only far flung places that we visit! We also run an annual theatre trip to the West End, go ice skating at Christmas
Sports: we are lucky to be able to offer all of our students sporting ativities to not only develop their team skills but to also help them to relax. Football is always very popular, but we have also offered hockey, Pilates and fitness.
