Enrichment Activities

To provide further opportunities for all students to enjoy Mathematics outside of their normal lessons, the faculty provides several lunchtime clubs throughout the year.


Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.

This is an opportunity for students to see how putting these essential subjects together can help you solve fun and challenging problems, as well as developing the skills that they and our country need for a successful future in a global economy.  A group of students from year 8 to year 11 are currently working on a Green Powered Car project.  Further opportunities for students from Years 7, 8 and 9 to join in with STEM club activities will arise throughout the year.
