Enrichment: the action of improving or enhancing the quality or value of something.

Enrichment is a great way to engage pupils in the wider community and teach important life-skills. A successful enrichment programme will promote the life-skills needed for everyday life, develop “soft skills” that employers and universities look for, while also giving students the opportunity to find out more about their interests and passions. Skills such as teamwork, negotiation and persuasion, problem solving, leadership, organisation and perseverance are all essential for our young people today.

At St. Hild’s Church of England School we believe in preparing our pupils for the future by providing a range of enrichment opportunities to gain new experiences, develop life skills and pursue interests. We believe enrichment promotes employability, academic attainment and teaches students the skills they need to make good, informed choices.

Clubs run on a morning, lunch time and after school with additional curriculum linked visits running across the academic year.
