Curriculum Enrichment Week

Students spend time learning new skills in the sunshine...

The last week of term at Sherborne International was dedicated to students stepping out of the classroom and taking part in a varied programme of activities to enrich and support their academic studies. After completing internal and external exams, students and staff enjoyed the good weather and the chance to learn some new skills.

A group of 25 students spent a few days exploring the Northern Powerhouse cities of Liverpool and Manchester. Highlights included a visit Old Trafford - home of Manchester United and a ferry trip across the famous River Mersey.

Students who stayed in the South West had the opportunity to take part in water sports, high ropes, horse riding and a Segway safari. They sketched the local Dorset countryside, designed t-shirts, bags and fans and produced some ceramic tiles. They solved a murder in CSI: Sherborne, hunted for fossils in Lyme Regis and built two new additions to the school campus in a Cobb Sculpture workshop.

The older students enjoyed cookery lessons at Frogmary Farm, whilst others had their first ever driving lesson on a specially designed track at the local motor museum. 

Many of the activities focussed on teamwork and confidence building and it was great to see how the students had grown since September. They embraced the opportunity to be involved in the different sessions on offer and had a memorable final week at Sherborne International.
