Developing self-reliance and promoting citizenship
We encourage our students to engage with the local community through charity work and as Student Leaders. We have close links with the National Citizenship Service which connects young people with volunteering opportunities and the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme which is open to students from Year 9 upwards.
There are many enrichment activities on offer to students, which can be viewed on our enrichment timetable.

- Physics trip to Switzerland
- Skiing in Austria and Italy
