Enrichment are activities that run alongside A level, BTEC and CACHE courses, which enable students to develop skills, make friends and have fun. Some enrichments are academic in nature, some are physically active, others allow students to explore mindfulness and some allow students to give to others. A full list of all the enrichments and what they involve is available by downloading the Enrichment Guide (click on the image to the right).
Among the new enrichments launching this year are academic enrichments for Criminology, Science and Technology. This includes the CSI Solihull enrichment, which will help students understand why people commit crimes and look at how crimes are solved using blood spatter or finger-print analysis. Meanwhile, the STEM Programme will give students interested in Science, technology, engineering and Maths to work towards achieving the Gold CREST award, while also enjoying exciting trips and visits. these academic enrichments join the already established specialist academies – a Pre-Medical School, English Academy, Social Sciences Academy and Visual Arts Academy.
Other new enrichments launching this year are the Student Magazine, Teaching Academy, Mentors in Violence Protection scheme and the Road Map to Employment programme. These will run in addition to well established enrichments involving sports, music, drama and much more.
Student-led enrichments are also very popular. Students can choose to run for election to the Student Council or set up their own student societies, where they can meet other like-minded students. Societies in previous years have included a LGBTQ+ Society, Debate and Public Speaking Society, Anime and Manga Society and many more.
The full list of enrichments open to students is available HERE and students are encouraged to ask about these options at open days. The first Open Day of the year will take place on Saturday 16 October 2021 (9.30am-3.30pm). Bookings for this event will open up on Monday 20 September.
