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.
There is a cost implication in taking pupils out of school … whether it be for residential visits or on day excursions, however, we have tried to keep this to a minimum and we hope you will agree it represents excellent value for money.
Live adventurously. When choices arise, do you take the way that offers
the fullest opportunity for the use of your
gifts in the service of God and the community?

Overview for 2018 (2 ~ 6 July):
Year 7 pupils are given the opportunity to enjoy a three-night activity holiday at the Manor House & Ashbury Hotel on the foothills of Dartmoor National Park. They will return home on Thursday and on Friday will visit Oxford.
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 five 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 two dinghies 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 a visit to Amazing Animals at Heythrop Zoological Gardens.
