Each year group had a different focus to give them a different type of learning experience.

There were more than 35 visitors in the college, running a wide variety of activities from ‘re-start a heart’ – a county-wide project to help students to learn basic CPR – to Save the Children, ESH and Scarborough Job Match, who talked to out Year 11 students about how to apply for an apprenticeship.

The students who took part were extremely well-behaved and the visitors in college said they could not praise them enough for their attitude and participatory spirit.

One visitor said: “We do this kind of thing every day but your students are absolutely lovely – they are so polite and really happy to join in.”

There will be four more college enrichment days during the year. The next of these is scheduled for Wednesday December 9 when students will have another focus for the day.

Staff are evaluating the day just held and reviewing what is offered to ensure that students will receive the best experiences possible during their time at the college.
