Extra-Curricular Opportunities

Home / Curriculum / Extra-Curricular Opportunities

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/

Our Work with the Manchester United Foundation

Dean Trust Rose Bridge is partnered with the Manchester United Foundation. The Manchester United Foundation is a charitable organisation that works with us to deliver motivational and inspiring projects to our pupils, with the goal of helping them reach their full potential.  You can find out more about the Manchester United Foundation and its work at www.mufoundation.org.

To ensure that the safety and welfare of our pupils is properly safeguarded and that the projects are delivered in an efficient manner, we provide Manchester United Foundation with basic information about each pupil taking part.  This includes the pupil’s name, date of birth, gender and basic details of any disabilities or medical conditions which may affect their ability to take part in the projects or necessitate special adjustments being made.  We may also provide emergency contact details if required.  Any information we supply to the Manchester United Foundation is securely held and used only for the purposes of delivering the projects and evaluating their success.  All information is processed and safeguarded strictly in accordance with applicable data protection laws.  If you require any further information about Manchester United Foundation or require a copy of their privacy policy, please contact ‘privacy@mufoundation.org’.
