The Learning and Enrichment team run workshops during regular PSHE lessons, to promote the work of the department, and is on-hand at all times to provide assistance to pupils who are looking for ways to enhance their learning.

In addition to focused PSHE lessons, students are invited to attend lunchtime workshops and drop-in sessions on notetaking, revision tactics, memory enhancement strategies and exam question analysis. We hold a touch-typing club to improve skills and promote confidence in computer-based work.

Importantly, our team provides a wide range of SEND interventions, including one-on-one support for girls who need additional help in the classroom. All students are screened in Year 7, sitting the Lucid Exact test which picks up potential difficulties.

There are a range of interventions we can employ around structuring writing, note-taking or concentration; many of which use personalised online programmes such as Lexia or Maths-Whizz to monitor progress. The department works closely with each student and her parents to find the best individual solution for her learning.

Our approach to learning enrichment focuses on a growth mindset and developing resilience, shifting the focus from ‘I can’t’ to ‘I can’t quite yet’.
