Student Development and Enrichment

We believe in the value of enrichment activities as an essential educational experience both within and outside of the classroom. At The Green School for Boys, every student in Year 7 has 2 hours a week of curriculum time dedicated to enrichment activities, and Year 8 students have 1 hour a week. In addition to this we run a comprehensive range of co-curricular opportunities throughout the week, including drama, music, art, science, debating and sports clubs before school, at lunchtimes and after school. We also have a series of educational enrichment visits that take place throughout the year, ensuring that every student has the opportunity to access learning outside of the classroom which further enables their personal  development, confidence, social skills and a sense of community. We also enagage students through the Duke of Edinburgh's Award and the Jack Petchey Speak Out Challenge, the Brilliant Club and our student publication "Reach" which is written and punlished by our students featuring a articles based around school life, current affairs and showcasing some of the best work produced across different subject areas.

 

We are extremely proud of the fact that The Green School for Boys was graded "OUTSTANDING" by Ofsted for Personal Development in February 2020, and we will continue to build on this area for our students as the school grows.

 

"Leaders provide a wide range of opportunities for pupils to develop their skills and interests within and outside the school day. There is an extended school day on Wednesday each week and pupils take part in activities such as coding, boxercise, indoor rowing, Latin and debating. Leaders record which activities pupils do and ensure that all pupils are making the most of the opportunities."
