Enrichment & Partnerships

Enrichment is an important part of daily life at Briar Hill Primary School.

Pupils have the opportunity to choose from a range of extra-curricular activities. Throughout the year at different times there will be breakfast club, multisports club, Glee club, guitar, drumming and football club.

As a David Ross Education Trust academy we believe that enrichment can help to raise academic standards, enhance performance and teach life skills that will equip our pupils for an ever-changing world.

Primary enrichment gives students the chance to participate in activities that supplement learning and enable them to broaden their skills and experiences, identify talent and enhance it.

Activities include visual and performing arts, including dance, drama and music. There is also a focus on art, sport, outward bound and developing life skills. 

Enrichment

Enrichment is a key driver for both Briar Hill Primary and our academy sponsor – David Ross Education Trust. We provide a broad range of enrichment opportunities - focussed around Sports, the Arts and Culture - as we firmly believe that these opportunities have a number of benefits for our pupils, both academically and personally by broadening their life experiences.
