Enrichment

What is Enrichment?

Enrichment is something that all pupils should be able to benefit from, which helps to make subjects more meaningful, memorable and rewarding. 

What is the purpose of the LHS Enrichment Programme? 

  • For all pupils to make memories that will last forever
  • For all pupils to leave LHS as well-rounded individuals 
  • For all pupils to have enjoyable experiences that develop them as a person outside the classroom
  • For all pupils to have experiences that make them stand out from others, which would be useful, for example, on their UCAS application.
