Curriculum Enrichment Week July 2018

I am pleased to inform you that during the week of Monday 9 July – Friday 13 July 2018, students in Years 7, 8 and 9 will take part in the school’s Curriculum Enrichment Programme.

Curriculum Enrichment is an important and rewarding week during the school year as it is a chance for students to take charge of their learning journey, to challenge themselves with new experiences, work alongside their peers in different year groups, and further develop positive relationships between students and staff.

Enrichment Week is a reward and opportunity for students who have consistently made a concerted effort throughout the year and have engaged positively in school life.  It is important to note that students who are given more than 40 behaviour points over the 2017/18 academic year will not be allowed to take part in the programme. A significant one off behaviour incident may also affect a student’s eligibility to take part. Also students who do not act appropriately according to the school’s behaviour policy during their Project Themed Programme will not be eligible for the Friday Fun Day Activity.
