Enrichement

Students are given the opportunity to develop their out of class learning through a range of homework projects, such as the ‘Shrine Project’ for Year 7 students.

The faculty runs a KS3 ‘Humanities’ Club. It involves lots of fun activities and gives students the opportunity to study Humanities topics that are of interest to them but are not taught in class. 

Number of Lessons Per Week

KS3: 1 hour

KS4: Within PSHE and Life Lessons
