Beyond the classroom

Extra Curriculum Clubs & Activities

In addition to our sporting clubs we also strive to develop interests in areas beyond the curriculum. Whether a student’s interest lies in music, film, singing or cookery we have after school clubs that offer great opportunities to expand your child’s perspective through enjoyment.

Grow Green Planter Competition 2018: Upcycle an old unwanted item & plant it up with summer flowers

This year we challenge students to combine gardening with recycling by growing a ‘green planter’.  Entry forms can be found below and need to submitted to tutors by 1 May 2018.  This will give you chance to upcycle your chosen unwanted household item and grow your plants from seed or buy them from local shops and garden centres to create a beautiful display ready to be judged on 6 June 2018.

Enter as a tutor group or individual.

Displays should be less than 1m deep x 1m high x 1m wide and completely watertight, weatherproof and secure.  Entries are to be transportable and delivered to school on Wednesday 6 June for judging.

Entries will be judged by an independent judge from Kidderminster Horticultural Society and will then be available to be collected on Friday 8 June 2018 or donated to an auction to raise money for a chosen charity.

Enrichment Programme for 2017-18

We are proud to be able to offer over 70 different options in our brand new enrichment programme. Available to all students as part of their weekly curriculum, everyone has the opportunity to learn brand new skills or to develop existing skills further.

Our Year 11 students are getting additional access to their chosen GCSE option subject while Year 10 students are getting additional time to get to grips with the demands on the new GCSE mathematics, English and science courses. Students in Years 7 to 9 and VIth Form have an even bigger choice with the opportunity to opt in to any one of 43 enrichment activities.  These include traditional activities such as music, drama, art and sport but also activities that have never before been offered in curriculum time such as Japanese, British Sign Language, Astronomy and Chess!’

Our new Enrichment Programme now takes place every Wednesday during Period 6 between 3pm and 4pm. Download the full list for more information.
