Enrichment & Extracurricular

Enabling students to develop life-skills and character is an essential part of education. At The Hayfield School, we recognise the value of an enriched curriculum in the development of the whole child.

The purpose of enrichment is to provide extended learning opportunities to study concepts with greater depth, breadth and complexity, while also helping students to pursue their own areas of interest and strengths outside the normal parameters of the school day. A big part of students’ personal development is about investing in themselves, outside of lessons as well as in them.

At The Hayfield School, we are proud of our comprehensive enrichment offer that aims to promote:

Self-confidence

  • Leadership skills
  • Self-motivation
  • Teamwork
  • Wider participation
  • Creativity
  • Emotional wellbeing

As a school our commitment to extracurricular enrichment can be seen in the wide range of weekly clubs and activities we offer after school from 2.45 – 4.00 pm.

We are particularly proud of our involvement in The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award. Since its creation in 1956 by HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, the DofE has gone from strength to strength having had a  positive impact on young people’s lives, in terms of their personal development and employability, and on wider society, from charities gaining active and engaged volunteers to businesses hiring work-ready recruits.

There are three levels of programme which, when successfully completed, lead to a Bronze, Silver or Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award. The main differences between them are the minimum length of time they take to complete, how challenging they are and the minimum age you can start.

The three Award levels are:

Bronze – for those aged 14+ years

Silver – for those aged 15+ years

Gold – for those aged 16+ years

At The Hayfield School, we offer our young people the opportunity to complete the Bronze and Silver Award. For more information, please contact Mrs E Conroy or Mr Huddart.
