Enrichment

We have been awarded the Queen’s Anniversary Prize for our Enrichment.

The award states that, “The College’s enrichment programme is a national exemplar of what can be done at sixth-form level to extend students’ education and personal growth beyond their academic courses. Hugely varied and demanding, the programme calls on students to develop self-reliance, promotes citizenship and prepares them to meet the world of work or further study with confidence and commitment.” Feedback from OFSTED in 2012 identified one strength of the college to be a “well managed and extensive enrichment programme with a broad range.”

Here you will find details of few of the activities, which go on at Greenhead to enrich your education, improve your employability skills and significantly increase your chances of standing out at a job or university interview. These include sports, music, drama, voluntary service in the community, Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and work shadowing. Enrichment takes place at lunchtimes, throughout the week, and on Wednesday afternoons. Activities vary in length and from year to year. Typically, there are over 100 activities to choose from.
