Enrichment Activities

At Queen Ethelburga's Collegiate, students can choose from a wide variety of activities to develop their knowledge, skills and experiences.

Enrichment activities run alongside the academic curriculum and THRIVE Pastoral Programme to facilitate students' holistic development and involvement in the Collegiate community. The activities on offer change twice per academic year, and students can select how many pursuits they wish to commit to each term.

Why Get Involved?

We recommend that students get involved in a wide variety of enrichment activities during their time at Queen Ethelburga's.

In particular, students attending King’s Magna who partake in the Enrichment Award or for senior students who need additional experience for university or employment applications.

Specialist Enrichment Activities

Students can also get involved in specialist activities like Fencing, Golf, Horse Riding, Tennis, Instrumental and Vocal Tuition, King's Academy for Performing Arts and the LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts) exam. 

Due to these activities offering advanced technical coaching and using external venues and/or instructors, students will need parental consent and to pay an additional fee to get involved.*

*Other enrichment activities are provided free of charge.

Super-Curricular Programme

The Enrichment Activities Programme runs alongside the Super-Curricular Programme that takes place throughout the school day.

In the Super-Curricular Programme, students can choose from options relating to a specific career interest or build a deeper knowledge of topics within a range of academic subjects and charity work. One of the benefits of the Super-Curricular Programme is that it provides the time for students to participate in Enrichment Activities during the school day.
