We are a highly aspirational college and believe you are able to achieve your personal best and go further than you could imagine. You will leave as a well-rounded individual having enjoyed a rich and varied programme of study and enrichment activities.

What are enrichment activities?

Enrichment activities fall into two categories: extra-curricular activities where you will take part in pursuits and interests in addition to your academic studies, and super-curricular activities that take your academic study to a higher level and demonstrate a real commitment to a subject.

We run an extensive range of extra-curricular and super-curricular activities and you will take part in one of each type each term. These activities will not only help build your confidence and enrich your learning experience, they are also a positive addition to university and job applications.

Below are a few examples of super-curricular activities that are on offer:

  • Astronomy Society
  • Forensic Linguistics
  • Horror Fiction Writing
  • Legal Podcasting
  • Social Science Research Club
  • Young Medics
