Enrichment


The Enrichment Programme is an integral part of Post-16 studies which takes place every Wednesday afternoon. Trinity Sixth Form offers this opportunity for several reasons; to provide an interest or hobby for students outside of their academic subjects. However, more importantly, it is no longer sufficient to simply do well in academic subjects in order to secure a place at University or a good job. University admissions tutors and workplace recruitment officers now increasingly look for more - seeking rounded individuals who have attempted to explore their potential. It is essential to gain experience in different areas in order to develop a broad range of skills and attributes. Universities are also interested in whether a student has the ability to cope with a broad range of activities alongside their academic work, revealing their organisational skills and personal qualities.

 

At Trinity Sixth Form, we want Post-16 students to have the opportunities to develop fully their talents and interests and to be able to demonstrate a broad range of interests and achievements in the increasingly competitive market for university places and job opportunities. In addition, it is important to have time away from their academic work to relax and pursue broader interests and hobbies.

 

In addition to the timetabled activities there will be a variety of sporting opportunities as well as societies and clubs for different subjects that you will have access to this year. More details to follow…

 

 

For Enrichment activities you will be divided into 5 small groups who will work alongside for a year. You will swap activities every 7 weeks (each Half Term – HT), giving you chance to experience all 5 activities during the year.
