Enrichment & life skills
The period of home learning can be used by our students to enrich their academic experience, and to enhance their CVs for the future. Future employers might ask our students how they used this period of time to develop their academic profile.
What is academic enrichment?
When teachers refer to academic enrichment, we mean academic study undertaken beyond the confines of the usual curriculum. We believe that this enrichment is extremely important, to broaden academic experience, and to undertake academic study solely for personal interest and the joy of learning, rather than in preparation for an exam.
We hope that our students and parents will appreciate the compelling reasons given above for academic enrichment, and therefore engage in the opportunities recommended. We will update the information provided below, as new opportunities for enrichment become available.
We also encourage parents to try some of these courses. They offer a great opportunity to promote lifelong learning.
Separately to the opportunities suggested, we will continue to deliver by distance learning the AS Level courses in our existing Sixth Form enrichment programme: English Language, Politics, and Mathematics and Statistics.
