Our diverse and exciting enrichment programme provides pupils with opportunities to engage in a variety of activities. The programme helps contextualise and reinforce learning in the classroom, and further develop communication, collaboration and leadership skills.
At St. Stephen’s we see the enrichment programme as complementary to academic studies, and an essential part of the education on offer. We encourage students to engage in two activities per week, though many choose to participate in more.
The programme is updated each term, allowing students to experience new activities, or develop new skills in existing activities, across the academic year. The wide-ranging programme includes, sports, music, drama, language and technology, as well as activities in other areas. Activities are led by Teachers and Teaching Assistants, many of whom are passionate about what they offer, who do their best to engage and enthuse the students.
The programme is also supported by external educational companies, sharing their expertise in a number of fields, including: robotics, coding, inline skating, football, tae kwando and ballet. In all external activities, pupils benefit from specialist staff, equipment and resources.
