At Dean Trust Rose Bridge we pride ourselves on the additional opportunities we provide for our pupils beyond their excellent academic experience in lessons. Learning inside the classroom is the key to success, but we also believe that so much more can be learnt beyond the classroom. Enrichment activities and trips play a very important part in enriching and enhancing a pupil’s experience of school life.
The aim at Dean Trust Rose Bridge is for every pupil to take part in at least one form of enrichment. Pupils enjoy lunch and after school clubs across curriculum areas, including music, art, drama, science and mathematics to name but a few. Every possible type of trip and visit – to suit all interests and all abilities – are made available for pupils, including team building weekends, rewards trips and work with local post 16 – organisations. We have a very strong tradition of sport at the school. Dean Trust Rose Bridge has regular participants in local and national competitions.
In addition to our ‘in-school’ enrichment opportunities, we also work very closely with the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme to provide this opportunity to all Year 9 pupils. This provision is coordinated by Mr R Shepherd, and for further details about what this Award entails, please visit: https://www.dofe.org/do/what/
