Enrichment Week

A key part of our Enrichment Programme is our annual Enrichment Week, which takes place towards the end of every academic year. Enrichment Week consists of a variety of trips and activities either in-school or off-site. All students within Years 7-10 are given the chance to take part in a residential trip during this week or participate in a combination of day trips and activities organised in school. Our in-school activities programme gives a broad range of choices and options for students who opt not to be on a trip for that day ensuring that all students have the opportunity to maximise the benefits of the week.

Due to ongoing changes in the public health situation, we are not able to offer as many international and residential trips during Enrichment Week 2022, in previous years our Enrichment Week has included the following trips:

  • Berlin and Auschwitz for Year 10 students
  • Barcelona language trip for Year 9 and 10 students
  • South of France Watersports trip for Years 7 and 9 students
  • Kent Mountain Centre activities week for Years 8 and 9 students
  • Hatfield House Bushcraft week for Year 7 students
  • Adur Activity Centre for Year 7 students
  • France day trips for Year 9 and 10 students

Those students who choose not to participate in a residential activity, have the option to take part in activities on the school site and in the village as well as day trips, including:

  • Theatre productions in London and Canterbury
  • Science Museum, London
  • Harry Potter Studios
  • Port Lympne Zoo
  • Rye Watersports
  • Dover Castle
  • Canterbury Beanie and Roman museums
  • Cookery
  • Forest school
  • Chatham Snow Sports

Education with character is fundamental to how Wye School and United Learning work, growing the whole child so that they are a rounded person. This section explains how we operate Careers, Combined Cadet Force, Duke of Edinburgh Award, our Enrichment Week and Co-Curricular Clubs
