Enrichment

    Our enrichment programme has been specifically designed to enhance the academic curriculum in the Sixth Form. Taking place once a week in mixed groups of Year 12 and 13, students can experience activities designed to help develop teamwork and adaptability skills, leadership qualities and a wide range of transferable skills. Some courses within Enrichment can lead to recognised external qualifications.
