Enrichment & Intervention Programme
Welcome to our Enrichment and Intervention curriculum programme from January 2015. On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons, we offer all of our pupils opportunities that will enrich their education by building relationships through sports and healthy activities, club activities and additional academic opportunities in areas other than curriculum subjects.
Our school core values are leadership, enterprise, ambition, drive, excellence and respect. It is our vision that the curriculum with all its enrichment opportunities will give our students the chance to develop these qualities. Many of the enrichment opportunities will give the students insight into a range of skills and subjects so that they can grow their experiences and discover new talents. Many of the subjects can be offered as a certificate or qualification (or lead to a wider choice of GCSE’s in the future) and will be an enhancement to any CV.
Fundamentally, we want our pupils to become confident, creative and critical problem-solving citizens with broad experiences that not only enhance their GCSE achievements but also give them the skills needed for the 21st Century workplace and to embrace “Learning for life”.
