Enrichment Week 2019

Monday 15 July to Friday 19 July 2019

During the final week of this academic year, The Buckingham School is organising an Enrichment Week for students in Years 7-10. This week will provide students with the opportunity to take part in an activity/range of activities outside of the normal curriculum and will allow students to develop new skills, improve existing skills, build new and existing relationships and develop team building skills which is an integral part of our wider SMSC and PSHE curriculum.

The activities which are on offer during this week are outlined in the Enrichment Week Guide - click on the button. 

Please read through the information carefully as there are different financial commitments for each and students should be aware that some of the activities will run for five days with no opportunity to switch between activities during the week. All students are required to take part in Enrichment Week and the usual attendance procedures will be in place.

We understand that for some of the activities, especially those with larger financial commitments, that this is short notice in order to be able to organise the payment before July. A centralised payment system via ParentMail will be set up next term to allow for payments to be made for the activities including instalment options for the more expensive offerings. Please rest assured that there will be similar opportunities available next year and the information for this will be released in the Autumn term to allow for the instalments to be spread over a longer period.

Next Steps 

Details about how to make your selections for Enrichment week will follow at the beginning of next term. There are a limited number of places available on each of the activities. Students will need to select options for Enrichment Week in order of preference. Whilst every effort will be made to ensure students are allocated to their first choice, where activities are over-subscribed we will take into account students ATL and Extended Learning from their reports and their behaviour over this academic year. 

If you have any questions about any of the activities on offer, please use the contact details of the lead organiser (as detailed the Enrichment Week Guide . Alternatively, you can contact Mr Siu (msiu@buckinghamschool.org) or Miss Chapman (lchapman@buckinghamschool.org).
