Enrichment

Enrichment

At Martin High School we pride ourselves on supporting learners’ academic and personal progress through a strong curriculum and a number of enrichment opportunities.

MMM_1332.jpg

Every young person is a valued individual and we want to create a platform for them to go beyond their expectations; parents will know they can feel safe in the knowledge that their child will be encouraged to be everything they want to be. Extra curricular activities as diverse as sport, the arts, classics, and languages such as Spanish offer learners the chance to work with peers, challenge themselves, and find new interests. Trips and excursions, visiting speakers, and careers support start learners thinking about life beyond school and encourage aspiration. Our Year 7 learners also enjoy participation in whole school drama productions, sports teams, and design exhibitions.

The Martin High School looks to develop our pupils holistically. We aim to not only achieve academic excellence, but more importantly that individuals achieve personal development which stands them in good stead as they move beyond our direct influence and into young adulthood.

This development can come through a number of sources, and will primarily be realised through encouragement and support in their home life. However, within the confines of what we are able to offer at School we look to providing all pupils with the opportunity to take part in our extracurricular enrichment clubs and teams.

The following is not an exhaustive list of activities available to pupils at MHS and some vary dependant on the time of year. There will be nominal charges for some clubs to cover running cost/materials and all clubs will work best when supported by parents e.g. arranging for pupils to be collected at the end of after School clubs and coming to watch inter-school sports fixtures when possible.

EXTRA CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES

Martin High School offers a wide range of extra curricular activities in all Key Stages to help enrich the learners experience and inspire learners to explore their passions. Below is a sample of extra curricular activities that have been organised previously. Our extra curricular calendar is very much organised around learner interests and passion. Having a large staff body means that if learners are passionate about something we can usually find a member of staff who is too and who is able to cater for their needs.
