core to the education that we provide as we believe that it expands the skills taught in class, broadens horizons and contributes to our students’ personal and social development.

That is why we run over ten after-school clubs every week and run a busy weekend events programme.

Just this term, pupils have taken part in trips to Bempton Cliffs, Ruswarp’s Hydroelectric Plant, Fairfax House in York and Jugger Howe Moor to name just a few.

Our students have also been busy organising community events such as the Rose Garden Music Concert and a charity ceilidh.

This year, we became a licensed Duke of Edinburgh assessment centre and many of our pupils have embarked on the ultimate enrichment activity: the Duke of Edinburgh scheme.

Joanna Koter is our first pupil to be awarded the Gold Award, and there are many pupils who are currently working hard to follow in her steps.

In class, our teachers pride themselves on the enrichment activities that they are free to provide alongside our curriculum: Hogwarts’ bedrooms in maths, volcano making in geography and green screens in drama included.
