‘A wide and varied enrichment programme enhances students’ experiences’ (Ofsted 2017)

Alongside our taught curriculum students at JBVI have the opportunity to spend two periods per week undertaking an enrichment activity.  These sessions are designed to allow our students to develop additional skills or gain experiences and interests that will make them stand out of the crowd in application for future study or employment.

Students have been able to choose from:

  • Work experience
  • NCEASport
  • Departmental support
  • Volunteering
  • Extended Project
  • Reading support
  • The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award
  • Arts Award Gold
  • Life skills programme
  • Work Preparation Programme


In addition our currriculum, subjects each hold an enrichment activity over the course of the year. Highlights have been:

  • Big Brain Day (Psychology)
  • Digital Day (ICT)
  • Auschwitz Ambassadors (History)
  • God and the Big Bang Conference (RS)
  • Morpeth Bypass case study (Construction)
  • Industry Mentor Day (Business)
