Excellent Enrichment Opportunities

  • The Duke of Edinburgh Award.
  • Our ‘Russell Group’ allows the brightest students to engage in a range of activities to enhance their applications to the most competitive universities. Examples include a visit to Oxford University and the chance to complete an EPQ.
  • We offer a full enrichment programme available to all. In recent years this has included; football, rugby and netball teams, school bands, debating, fair trade and charity societies, trips to Iceland and New York, school dance shows and theatrical productions as well as numerous other activities and educational visits.
  • A proactive student management team helps to ensure the needs of students are always met. Elections are held annually.
  • A bespoke enrichment programme for those wishing to pursue a career in teaching in partnership with Edge Hill University. Participants attend focused workshops, undertake formal work experience in school and visit Edge Hill’s campus.
  • Work placements and volunteering opportunities with organisations such as The Challenge. All students complete an Internship Week in a workplace at the end of year 12.
  • Students are encouraged to join with like-minded others to join clubs and societies that reflect their own interests. Staff will always be available to offer support.
