Enrichment – Educating the ‘whole person’
Students need to be equipped with the core competences for the rapidly evolving world of work. Our aim is for students to have enquiring minds, an intellectual curiosity and know how to apply their learning and knowledge in new contexts.
Our students develop intellectual ambition, academic passion and a love of scholarship as a basis for life-long learning. They are problem solvers, think creatively, generate innovative solutions, analyse and assess a variety of information.
Students develop their ability to work independently and manage their tasks; they have drive and resilience and are able to work under pressure. They communicate clearly and confidently, both verbally and in writing; and are able to adapt their style to meet the needs of different audiences.
Freemen’s ensures the ‘whole person’ is developed
Students have a global perspective and understand what it is to be a global citizen. They develop and build relationships; develop their ability to work as team members; and understand the intentions, motivations and desires of other people. Our students are honest, act with integrity and lead fit and healthy lives.
The Enrichment afternoon – at the heart of the curriculum
The enrichment programme aims to enhance the social, physical and personal development of each individual student. Each year group has an enrichment afternoon timetabled to allow pupils to explore leadership opportunities, non-examined courses and community service.
As the pupils work through the enrichment programme, they will experience a wide range of experiences in five broad areas:
- For others
- Skills development
