Enrichment Opportunities

We consider enrichment to be an essential part of the curriculum, and have developed an extensive programme of activities to allow students to discover their strengths and enhance their skills.

The intention behind this programme is to give students opportunities to explore different activities and pastimes, while encouraging a healthy and balanced lifestyle. In addition, it enables connection with local communities and different culture to provide a balanced worldview, as consistent with an important aspect of the Stone Soup ethos. Ultimately, we aim to provide students with opportunities to widen their life experience and instil in them the confidence to operate outside their normal environments. By promoting an environment that values other groups, we encourage our students to increase their empathy and understanding of the value in making a positive contribution to the community.

Activities include:

  • Dance
  • Boxing
  • Indoor Rock Climbing
  • Bowling
  • Ice Skating
  • Environmental Studies
  • Trips to museums and galleries
  • Trips to other cities
  • Trips to theme parks
  • Event days
  • Residential activity trips

These activities are designed to give the students opportunities to:-

  • explore different activities and past times whilst encouraging a healthy and balanced lifestyle; 
  • connect with local communities and different cultures to provide a balanced world view; 
  • widen their life experience and instil in them the confidence to operate outside their normal environments.

We do not require payment from parents for any activities or trips, but additional consent from parents/caregivers will be required for trips that take place outside Nottingham.
