THE ECCLESBOURNE SCHOOL

Learning Together For The Future

Enrichment

Course Overview

All Year 11 students have the opportunity to take an enrichment course to broaden their experiences or allow for additional support with GCSEs. These courses run on one afternoon per week throughout Year 11. All students select courses during Year 10, some of which run for the whole year whilst others are for half a year. In this case, they are followed by a second selection for the second half of the year. There is some degree of choice, but guarantees cannot be made.

These courses do not necessarily lead to an external qualification but are intended to address some of our key educational aims, so that all students acquire the knowledge and skills they need now and for the future. These courses give students opportunities to develop confidence in themselves and their abilities, and work together effectively and with enthusiasm and appreciate the world at large.
