Enrichment Week

Our annual ‘Enrichment Week' held at the end of the summer term is filled with activities based around one of our five Core Values in 2021 the theme was SERVICE. 

The purpose of the week is to give the students an opportunity to engage in a range of activities and lessons outside of the normal curriculum that will help their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. The activities are selected to help students both inside and outside of the classroom understand more about themselves and the society around them.

In 2021 the week also coincided with our Raising and Giving (RAG) week. This is our annual charity week where the Student Leadership Team creates a range of events that will raise money for their selected charity. This year students are raising funds for YoungMinds, a mental health charity. https://youngminds.org.uk/about-us/who-we-are/

This is a very different week at College, one that is fun and engaging and that will get the students involved in serving their local and national communities. As well as understand more about how others serve us. We always take great care to ensure that costs for the week are kept to a minimum so that all students can access every activity in their week. 

Overview of Activities - July 2021

Democracy Day:  An opportunity for students to explore the UK parliamentary system, understand more about the democratic society we live in and then experience a parliamentary debate in school.

Study Skills Day:  A series of workshops aimed at developing the students' understanding of what it takes to become an effective learner. Developing new skills and receiving tips and tricks to help them become more independent when they study.

First Aid:- A chance for all students in Years 8 and 9 to learn about basic first aid. An essential life skill that will ensure that the students know what to do should they ever be called upon to deal with an emergency.

Inter-house Day: Students can enjoy a day of numerous inter house competitions and events all leading towards The Dearing Cup points at the end of the year.

Sponsored Walk:  Opportunity for students to go for a full day’s walk out of school to Newlands Corner and back via the River Wey, the Chantries and Stoke Park. Students will be asked to donate a small amount each for the walk or to raise sponsorship for themselves. The money will go directly to the RAG week charity.

Beach Clean Up:- Specifically for Year 7 students (Stewardship Core Value). This trip aims to take all Year 7 students to West Wittering’s Beach. Part of the day we will have time on the beach clearing litter and debris as we aim to serve the Wittering’s community on the South Coast with some pay back for being able to use their facilities, making it a better place for all future visitors and wild/marine life.

This is a free trip paid for by the school. In return, the student will be expected to help out. To do this they will be given disposable gloves and supervised by a full team of staff.

Duke of Edinburgh  Award Preparation: A chance for all Year 9 students to find out more about the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme, learn some skills and get a taster of possible activities Including some team building exercises.

Year 10 Week of Work: A range of talks and activities throughout the week for Year 10 that focus on key employability skills. This will culminate in 2 days of mock interviews and feedback sessions for the students. This is in place of work experience that was unable to occur due to the national restrictions.
