Welcome to the Manor Enrichment Programme. This page gives you information about the 'Get Onboard' enrichment programme.
Each week there are a number of different enrichments and catch up sessions available and you can find constructive and enjoyable activities to take part in every week.
Why get onboard in enrichment activities?
There are two main reasons to get onboard. Firstly, catch up sessions are a fantastic tool to help accelerate your academic achievement. Whether you missed a lesson, want to improve your depth of knowledge or need help with coursework then catch up sessions will provide you with extra tuition.
Secondly, enrichment activities allow you to gain experience and skills in areas not typically part of your everyday curriculum. Enhancing your personal attributes by opting to gain new experiences is extremely desirable to future employers and higher education providers.
How can I get onboard?
Whether you're in years 7, 8, 9, 10 or 11 there is a huge range of sessions to choose from. Some activities are
specifically targeted at individual year groups or key stages and this information is provided in the title of each
enrichment. Enrichments that are open to everyone are a great opportunity to make friends in other year groups.
Do I need to sign up in advance?
No! For enrichments that are targeted towards specific students it is clearly stated in the title. Although you don't need to sign up in advance, speak to your subject teacher before attending, to find out what you may need to bring with you and so that any resources you will use can be provided.
Occasionally enrichment sessions may need to be cancelled, such as when there is bad weather. You will be made aware of this at the very first opportunity so that you can plan your journey home.
When do enrichments run?
Enrichments run after the academy day from 15:00pm to 16:00pm.
We look forward to seeing you there.
