Overview

ENRICHMENT

Your child may have a particular interest or hobby we’ve not mentioned here. Let us know if we can help develop that interest.


Curriculum Enrichment

We believe in taking every opportunity to deepen and enrich our students’ education, reaching far beyond the National Curriculum and developing a love of learning for life.

In lessons, our students are challenged to become independent, resilient and reflective learners, capable of open-ended enquiry, debate and discussion across a wide range of subjects. Departmental Programmes of Study are shared with students with an emphasis on the importance of independent study and ownership of learning. Research and enquiry techniques are taught actively in all subject areas with key numeracy and literacy skills embedded across the curriculum to enable our students to take full advantage of opportunities in life.

Extra-curricular study is valued in all subject areas. Cross-curricular development is also a key feature of our Able, Gifted and Talented provision.

Subject areas offer opportunities for wider challenge to all students through a range of activities:

Mathematics

Inter-school and inter-house competitions
