Enrichment and Extra Curricular

Enrichment Opportunities 2022/23

We are delighted to showcase what wonderful experiences we can provide your child this academic year. There are a number of curriculum based enrichment opportunities that support the relevant subject area that your child might be studying, along with a structured Enrichment Week in July 2023. 

Please spend time with your child looking through the booklet, identifying the trips that would be suitable for them, and making sure the trip is available to your child’s year group or option group, as some are for specific year groups or option groups. We have worked hard to ensure there are a number of trips and residentials which cover a range of price brackets, we do not expect your child to go on every trip however we recommend looking at the financial impact it will have for your family, along with identifying when deposits and payments will need to be in for before registering your interest on a trip. 

All the experiences that are available for your child will be available to view by using the links provided on the last page of the brochure from Monday 12th September until Sunday 2nd October. Please make sure it is an experience your child wants to go on, and you can ensure all payment structures are adhered to (see page 29) This year it will not be on a first come, first served basis. Once we have received all the names registered for each trip, we will then undertake our selection process. Once this is completed, we will confirm if your child has been given a place on the trip or if they have been put on the waiting list, on Friday 14th October. Having received confirmation we will then open up Parentpay for you to settle deposits which will need to be paid no later than Sunday 30th October. At this stage, if you have not paid your deposit, we will then look to the waiting list to cover the allocated places for each trip. 

  • Please read through the full terms and conditions on Pages 33 and 34 before committing to any trip. 

Enrichment Brochure 22/23

Enrichment Week July 2023

Each year group will have a particular curriculum focus for the week. We have also made every effort to offer trips and residentials at different price ranges to suit all. Year 7 and 8, alongside their curriculum focus, will have a residential available for them to register their interest for, this will be a great way of forging new relationships and working on their resilience by attempting some of the tasks and activities during each residential. Should you register your interest for the Lake District or Hereford residentials please be aware that you would be away for the week so would be unable to attend the curriculum focused day trips such as Newstead Abbey or Yorkshire Wildlife Park. Year 9 will all have a fun packed activity day on site, along with day trips made available to work on their inquisitiveness. Year 10 will be undertaking their work experience Monday – Friday before the whole school will be involved in a sponsored event during Friday morning, more details to follow on this.
