The purpose of SPIRIT enrichment is to develop skills such as resilience, teamwork, critical thinking and leadership to enable our students to thrive in a rapidly changing world. SPIRIT enrichment runs throughout the year, offering a wealth of opportunities for all our students as we know that extracurricular activities are a vital part of children’s education and post-school success. A dedicated SPIRIT Enrichment Co-ordinator monitors participation in an extensive range of extra-curricular activities to ensure our students, including those from disadvantaged backgrounds, benefit from a well-rounded, culturally rich, education. There are also SPIRIT development days, focus afternoons and our unique SPIRIT week. Over the course of three days in summer term, students in Years 7, 8 and 9 choose a selection of activities both within school and as external trips. SPIRIT week is an exciting opportunity for all students to participate in a variety of new enrichment experiences to develop and enhance their cultural capital, promote new interests and skills, and focus on health and well-being. We also know the importance of high-quality extracurricular activities in improving attainment, behaviour and attendance.
