The Enrichment programme is designed to introduce a wide range of cultural and physical elements to pupils’ education and has included scuba diving, all types of dance from street and hip hop to Latin American, circuit training, trail running, yoga, gymnastics, dressmaking, computer games, debating, axe-throwing, music technology, music making, fashion illustrating and cookery.
Through the Enrichment programme pupils from Pre-Prep through to Upper School access three productive 50 minute slots a week within the school timetable to learn different skills of their own choosing from the huge variety on offer. With options changing every half term, the enrichment programme is a uniquely rich platform for pupils to develop their interests and talents to an even deeper level, or to have a go at something completely new.
Whilst the National Curriculum is very important, school should also be about preparing children for everyday life. The Enrichment programme has been introduced to help pupils to develop broader interests and skills across a diverse and wide range of subjects. As a school which encourages breadth of experience and opportunity, it is imperative that every child has access to a broad scope of arenas in which to find their metier and to shine.”
