In Year 9, our students are offered an exciting enrichment programme which is designed to build and transform their learning by bringing together the skills and knowledge gained from the earlier KS3 curriculum . This is done in an ambitious and cumulative way, ensuring all learners receive the knowledge, cultural capital and proficiency they will require to succeed at the next stage of learning and in later life. Our enrichment programme extends beyond the academic, technical or vocational and ensures students develop more broadly, discovering their own interests and talents.
