At St Clare’s School, we endeavour to educate the whole child. Our aim is to send young people out into the world of work as responsible, balanced young citizens. Developing life-skills and character education have always been at the forefront of our day to day pastoral care at St Clare’s but this year, we will be explicitly addressing their development through our new enrichment programme. Our hope is to offer activities that will form an essential part of promoting employability and enhancing academic attainment, whilst teaching our young people essential life skills that will have benefits well beyond the classroom.
In the Senior School, we have adapted our timetable so that all pupils will take part in the enrichment programme every Wednesday afternoon. Alongside the planned activities, the PE department will be running sporting fixtures and a variety of tournaments, minimising the impact on the academic curriculum. The Maths Department will also offer additional Statistics and Further Maths GCSEs to their more able Year 10 mathematicians.
Consent letters for trips off-site and information on required clothing will be given out in advance of particular sessions. Mrs Smart and Mrs. Parker will be reviewing the impact of the current programme, through surveys and feedback sessions with the pupils and their opinions will shape the look of the autumn term’s programme.

Spring Term Prep School Clubs
Each club runs until 4:00, 4:15 or 4:30 and the pupils will be fully supervised. Club leaders will give parents details of finishing times at the start of term. Parents will be required to make the necessary arrangements for transport home and it is essential that a parent informs the club leader in writing should their child be unable to attend the club on any occasion during the year.
Due to the popularity of a number of the clubs it may be necessary to organise some on a rota basis.
