Enrichment & Extra-Curricular

Home / Curriculum / Enrichment & Extra-Curricular

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 learned beyond the classroom. Enrichment experiences, educational visits and extra-curricular opportunities are integral to the experiences of pupils, and their personal development.

Our aim is for every pupil to experience at least one form of additional enrichment. We believe that this helps to support the development of cultural capital and thus improve the life chances of all pupils.

  • Pupils enjoy lunch and after school clubs across curriculum areas, including music, art, drama, science and mathematics to name but a few.
  • We organise a wide range of educational visits to suit all interests and abilities.
  • We have a very strong tradition of sport at the school and we have regular participants in local and national competitions.
  • All pupils receive bespoke careers support that is embedded into our core curriculum.
  • Pupils have the opportunity to participate in the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme. For further details on this, please visit https://www.dofe.org/do/what/ .
