    Enrichment Days

    Our Enrichment experience is exactly that - enriching! We know that team building, perseverance, communication and confidence are vital skills and qualities for successful, happy students. Enrichment days where we collapse the traditional timetable encourage our students to thrive on challenge and respond positively to different situations. Whether that's a Rugby World Cup day, a field visit to The Deep or an Enterprise event led by Newcastle Football club our students experience a rich programme.

    We encourage all our students to be creative and thoughtful as we confront contemporary challenges such as recycling and resourcing for life. Experts are welcomed to support different events and local employers and universities give invaluable advice to our students throughout the school.

    Our end of year Enrichment week ensures we end the year on a high with amongst other things, mixed age groups facing 5 challenges with a hotly contested winner! Whether that's an Olympic celebration, a murder mystery Cluedo style or a homage to the Tour de France, staff and students throw themselves into it with gusto.

    Enrichment is evident through many lessons and activities throughout the year, our Enrichment Days are a celebration of all the skills and qualities we value in our students, staff and community.
