Enrichment

 

Enrichment activities play an essential part in enhancing the educational experience, developing life skills, character and cultural capital of all our students. As a school we have always been committed to the broad range of opportunities we offer our students; integrating this into the school week reflects the value we place, not just on academic achievement, but student involvement, enthusiasm and personal development.

We attach a high value, introducing opportunities so students will leave Ousedale equipped to compete (and succeed) in a changing world and that each student, regardless of their ability, has the opportunity to shine.

This academic year, activities have aimed to develop aspiration, confidence, leadership opportunities, competition (including regional, national and sport) and exposure to employers or simply exploring an area or activity a student would not normally have the opportunity to do.

Enrichment activities will take place in alternate half terms during Wednesday lesson 5. Some of these activities extend beyond the school day or involve taking students off-site. 

Some of the activites offered to students so far this year include:
