Curriculum Enrichment Week takes place during the last week of the summer term.
All pupils in the Senior School (apart from Year 11) are taken off the normal timetable and given the opportunity to try an activity that is new, exciting and perhaps something that they would not normally undertake.
Past experience and feedback tells us that the pupils benefit greatly from these activities and it also gives them the opportunity to enjoy time together as a year group.
Take a look at what our students did in 2019:
Year 7 pupils are given the opportunity to enjoy a three-night activity holiday at the Manor House Hotel on the foothills of Dartmoor National Park. They will return home on Thursday and on Friday will enjoy an in-school activity.
Back by popular demand … our five-day residential boating trip on the Norfolk Broads.
We arrive at Herbert Woods boatyard in Potter Heigham where we have six 10-berth cruisers booked. Students enjoy learning life skills, cooking, shopping, cleaning, teamwork, driving the boats by day and rope skills when mooring. Each boat tows one dinghy which students are allowed to row in if not on duty when moored. The National Park affords a unique educational experience and on-shore excursions include visits to a Victorian Eel Keeper’s Cottage at How Hill and Ranworth Church, from where we can enjoy spectacular views across the Broads.
The week will start with school-based preparation work. Then on Tuesday, Year 9 will be setting off on a three-day trip to the Somme and Ypres to visit the Battlefields of World War 1. The week ends with an in-school activity.
