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 learnt 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/ .

Pupil Leadership @ DTRB

As a school, we look to empower our young people to be citizens of the future. This means developing  meaningful leadership opportunities for them. At Dean Trust Rose Bridge, we are proud of the roles and responsibilities that our pupils take on, and look to support all pupils in their leadership journey. Some examples of our leadership opportunities are below:

  • Prefects (Open to Y11 pupils)
  • Form Representatives
  • Pupil Parliament Members
  • Sport Leaders
  • MUFoundation Leaders
  • Literacy Ambassadors
  • Learning Mentors

Our pupils shape what we do as a school and, through their positions of leadership, they have had a positive impact on our school. From introducing eco-friendly recycling measures to changes in our uniform, we empower pupils to have a positive impact on their educational experience.

Pupils have the possibility of joining the Pupil Parliament every January. This runs for an academic year. Form Representatives are elected, and will contribute to one of the DTRB leadership committees. These are ran by a member of the senior leadership team. Prefects are chosen from an application process every academic year.
