Success in life comes from more than just exams so all students are encouraged to broaden their horizons beyond the classroom to develop new skills and broaden their outlook on life.

Our diverse Enrichment Programme supports our academic curriculum and forms an integral part of the wider education and college experience offered to our students. Our vision is to create all-rounded students, who excel academically and develop their emotional, interpersonal and social skills.

Students involve themselves in a range of sports including football, basketball, yoga and badminton, as well as having access to exercise and fitness facilities.

Other activities include Art & Photography, Film Club, Audio Books listen and discussion, Wellbeing club, Science club, Year 13 medical club, Engineering Club, Astronomy club, Origami club.

The music group welcomes all who are interested in singing and playing instruments. The students practice each week and regularly perform at college events and assemblies.

The college participates in national award initiatives including the Bank of England Project and the British Mathematical Olympiad, and also arranges a number of fundraising activities and events in support of local charities.

All departments offer educational visits to enhance the curriculum. These can include residential visits and trips to the theatre, museums, galleries and to local universities.

Links with a number of local businesses have been built up to give students a flavour of what different sectors can offer and the skills they are looking for in candidates. Interactive workshops and voluntary work placements have all contributed to this.
