Gain skills, pursue new interests, meet other students and have fun by taking part in our Enrichment programme.

Get Rich Fair’

Once a year in the first term, we host a ‘Get Rich Fair’ where you can find out more about what is available and how to sign up for the activities. All activities are free. Previous enrichment activities have included the Debating club, Glee club, Nail Art club, street dancing, acting, and arts and crafts. We also offer a wide range of sporting enrichment including: basketball, football, table tennis, badminton, volleyball, rugby and beach rugby. We have an excellent on-site gym with staff who will test your fitness levels and design a personal fitness programme for you. There will also be an opportunity to take part in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award programme.

Get involved

Our Enrichment programme reflects your interests and passions and we actively encourage you to set up your own enrichment activities through clubs and societies and join in with fundraising events, volunteering or community projects.

Getting involved in our enrichment activities will make your time at the College much more enjoyable, increase your circle of friends and add another interesting dimension to your CV, whether you are applying to university or going into employment.

Student Volunteer Programme

The Student Volunteer Programme is part of our Leadership Academy. Why not join and make a difference? There are a number of roles and opportunities for students to become role models and leaders. These include Student Sports Coaches, Student Ambassadors, Language Ambassadors, Student Innovators and Study Buddies. There is also the opportunity to be elected on to a role on the Student Partnership Council.
