At Scarborough College we take the Enrichment Programme very seriously. After all, having fun is a serious business! Education outside the classroom plays an essential part in both developing students’ social confidence, extending existing interests and creating new ones. In some cases, the sessions are geared to reinforcing students’ learning for both very able students and those who require more support.

Activities take place outside of lesson times, at lunchtimes and after school. The EP schedule, as it’s known, runs from 4.15 p.m. to 5.15 p.m. on four days a week. The College ensures the opportunities available are wide-ranging. Each pupil’s Tutor will encourage individuals to have a balanced Enrichment profile. The programme changes termly and all students must sign up for at least THREE activities which they will undertake on a weekly basis. At least one of these must be a physical activity.
Activities such as Duke of Edinburgh Award come with the added benefit of trips and camps which further boosts bonding with other pupils and enhances life experience. Do see the separate page for more information about the Duke of Edinbut=rgh Award programme and opportunities available in school.
Furthermore, there are other residential trips such as cultural visits to Europe and in the UK as well as sports tours and expeditions in the UK and abroad..
