Enrichment at Chapter House
Extra-curricular activities are a vital ingredient in developing confidence, leadership and teamwork skills in children and add to the enjoyment of their time at school. Chapter House offers a wide variety of activities as part of the 'My School Experience' initiative. This promotes active participation, encourages children to try new activities and often sparks a lifelong interest for our pupils.
Guest speakers and visitors enhance the stimulating in-house programme of learning, and educational visits that are designed to capture their imagination are provided for every child in each year group.
In addition, Chapter House children can participate in residential enrichment visits, including city excursions and ski trips. These trips help to stimulate their broader interest in the world around them and allow them to learn and excel beyond the classroom.
