At college, you will have the opportunity to try out different experiences, maybe take up a new hobby or learn a new skill.

College is not just about studying for qualifications. There are plenty of activities that will help you to develop different interests and meet students from other courses.

Why participate in enrichment?

When you apply for a university place, training scheme, or job opportunity, you will need to show evidence of wider achievements as well as good grades.

Universities and employers want to know about your other skills, including leadership, teamwork, motivation, commitment and time management.

Our enrichment programme will help you to demonstrate all of these skills, and whatever activities you choose to do, you’ll have fun and boost your self-confidence at the same time!

All activities may vary, are subject to availability and may not run every term. The following are examples of enrichment activities we offer. For a full list, please check Moodle.


  • Sport and fitness events (football, table tennis, gym)
  • Music (learn to sing, play the keyboard, play the drums)
  • Chess
  • Sign language

Day trips

  • Alton Towers
  • Warner Bros. Studio Tour
  • Thorpe Park
  • Ice skating
