Enrichment Overview

Inspirational teaching and learning in the classroom ensures our students’ academic success.

Hatch End High School also believes that an outstanding education offers all students an extensive range of extra experiences which will enable them to develop and be truly successful in life. We ensure our young people have full access to the same kinds of opportunities as students in the private sector.

In Years 7 and 8, all students have a timetabled hour where they are able to choose from an enrichment offer which will provide them with new skills and broaden their horizons. They are also actively encouraged to become involved in a wide range of supplementary activities provided before and after school, at break-time and out of school hours. These will include sport and the arts as well as character forming programmes such as Duke of Edinburgh; the Brilliant Club; Debate Mate; Young Enterprise; Maths Challenge and the Arts Award.

Our Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics enrichment programme is second to none, and students compete in regular challenges as well as making frequent visits to the Russell Group Universities to participate in a wide range of Masterclasses.

The Arts are woven into the very “fabric of the building” at Hatch End High School and brought alive in the main curriculum areas as well as our extensive enrichment provision. The Music Department offers a huge array of opportunities - from individual instrumental lessons to bands, choirs and many, many public concerts.

Learning outdoors is essential to develop resilience, and we offer many visits to centres like PGL. The challenges and experiences students face are invaluable markers for future life — building selfconfidence, a spirit of adventure and teamwork. The Duke of Edinburgh programme is an international award in which many of our students across the year groups participate to achieve their Awards.

An exciting variety of trips, both locally and internationally, take place throughout the whole year, from the History Trip to Berlin, Geography Field Trips UK wide and, of course, our wonderful free museums in London.

How do I find out what activities are on offer?

Our ENRICHMENT ACTIVITIES change regularly. We advertise them through:

  • Our daily notice in tutor times
  • Assemblies
  • Posters around the school

We are also developing our use of EduLink in order to communicate these further with parents and students.

NO EDUCATION CAN BE COMPLETE; INDEED NO PROGRAMME OF EDUCATION CAN EVEN BEGIN, WITHOUT MAKING THE ARTS AND CREATIVITY CENTRAL TO A CHILD’S LIFE. - DFE
