Enrichment

Life at Epsom and Ewell is about much more than lessons. There is a comprehensive enrichment programme that caters for all interests and skills.

Our aim is to see every young person involve themselves in at least one activity beyond their curriculum.

Highlights of the enrichment programme include the annual production run by the Performing Arts department and a fully comprehensive and inclusive programme of sporting activities run by the PE department.

In addition to this we have a house system run by our student leadership team. Students represent four Olympians and have the opportunity to plan, run and participate in inter house competitions.

Academic development is also catered for across the key stages where students are provided with the chance to partake in the brilliant club. Students undertake a university experience day at Oxford University followed by a mini project focused on a variety of different subjects. A PhD student is also provided from the university to mentor students through the process. A graduation ceremony takes place at Kings College London every July.

We also run the Bronze and Silver Crest award for students in KS3 and 4 respectively. The nationally accredited award allows students to gain hands on experience of investigations and enquiry-based learning through different projects in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

Duke of Edinburgh is a very popular activity on offer for KS4 and 5 students. Students commit for 3 or 6 months to learning a new skill, playing sport and completing charity work as well as completing an independent walking expedition.

Enrichment Days

In order to supplement the excellent enrichment program we already have in place at lunchtimes and after school, we organise Enrichment Days throughout the academic year for students in years 7 & 8.

The dates, aims and activities available on our enrichment days are outlined below:

Dates

Year 7 – November 2018

Year 8 – March 2019

Aims

Provide students with opportunities to participate in activities which will help to inform future career choices.

Provide opportunities for students to strengthen and further develop their skills to become confident independent learners.

Allow students to become increasingly active and independent in their learning and thinking.

Encourage students to participate in activities that are cross-curricular in order to make links between different areas of the curriculum and develop transferable skills.
