Enrichment at Sir Graham Balfour School

Here at Sir Graham Balfour School we believe in preparing our students for the future by providing a range of opportunities to gain new experiences, develop life skills and pursue interests via our enrichment opportunities.  Our extensive Enrichment programme encompasses three main strands:

Extra-curricular clubs and activities: We have a weekly timetable (please see attachment below) of clubs and activities that provide further opportunity to develop curriculum-based skills and interests at lunchtime and after school.  Some examples of these clubs are:

- Vocal Group and Orchestra

- Sports clubs (badminton, basketball, netball, rugby, football and many more as the year progresses)

- Film club

- Origami


- Performing arts

Extension: Extended learning opportunities include masterclasses, music lessons, foreign trips, educational visits and events. These are all undertaken to extend learning, provide stretch and challenge and inspire ambition.  For example; our Scholars Award programme offers students the opportunity to extend their learning and interests via a structured achievement programme.

Engagement in wider personal development: we offer opportunities for students to engage in experiences which develop skills and knowledge that they would not usually develop in the mainstream curriculum. For example; Duke of Edinburgh and a variety of optional enrichment activities such as The Sir Graham Balfour Award, British Sign Language and First aid.
