Enrichment

On Friday afternoons we have extended enrichment, which allows for deeper exploration of themes, places or activities. For example, in ‘Spiritually Me’ we might go to the local Gurdwara or find out about the Quaker movement. In ‘Thank-you Café’, we practice our virtue of gratitude, by cooking and hosting a three-course meal for our loved ones. This is also a time where we can take trips out to the local community, such as visiting the Winterbourne Gardens, learning about history at Selly Manor, or appreciating great works of art at the Barber Institute of Fine Arts.

For Sixth Form, there is the opportunity to lead or support an enrichment activity, such as the student-led ‘Politics and Tea’ enrichment. Sixth Form students also take part in social action projects, and self-organise work experience placements, to further develop their character and prepare them for the future.

I feel like UoBSchool has helped me gain more confidence as a person. You get involved in so many different enrichments, you learn that you have to put yourself out there and try new things. I’ve tried all sorts… Taikwondo, cooking on a budget, self defence, lacrosse. Coming to UoBSchool helps you gain perspectives on what you actually enjoy doing, and gives you experience that will be useful for the rest of your life. – Demornay Osazumwa
