ENRICHMENT

Our Enrichment Programme fosters a flexible approach to learning in which each pupil can have an opportunity to gain positive benefits. For many young people involved in the programme they will gain new life experiences and develop new skills. In turn this will allow them to build positive relationships with their peers and staff alike. An important factor of the programme is that everyone can achieve something in the outdoor education setting and this will be evident as the young people’s self-esteem begins to develop.

Our enrichment lead oversees a range of activities including woodland craft, orienteering, archery and team building exercises.
