The Sixth Form Enrichment Programme at Claremont High School Academy forms a core part of the Sixth Form curriculum. The programme consists of a range of courses, training and activities which aim to support and enable students to develop into impressive and well-rounded individuals.
Enrichment appears on all sixth form student timetables and takes place on a Monday afternoon every fortnight. In addition to the Monday enrichment sessions, students are encouraged to participate in a range of activities throughout the year, both in group situations and as individuals. These additional experiences enhance the impression students give to future employers and are extremely valuable when applying to Higher Education establishments. But most importantly it broadens students’ interests, teaches useful skills for life beyond school and provides an opportunity to gain some additional qualifications.
