Enrichment Programme Highlights - posted 19th Jul

As a College with a Christian character, we are committed to our students’ academic success and to the development of their individual character and personality. At the end of the 2019-2020 academic year we launched our College Enrichment Programme which ran for all students in Year 7 – 10 and Year 12 during the last two weeks of term. During this time, the students engaged in a range of PSHE workshops, careers education events and a number of cultural trips and enrichment activities run by College staff and external agencies.
