Enrichment activities are an integral part of the life of The King’s School, providing pupils with opportunities to enhance their personal development, extend their learning experience beyond the classroom and into the wider community and develop expertise in areas beyond the formal curriculum. Enrichment activities include visiting speakers, theatre visits, lunchtime and after school clubs, trips and sporting activities. These opportunities enable pupils to have fun together, cultivate great friendships, make enduring memories, and learn many important life skills.
Activity days and the Year 6 residential allow pupils to embrace new challenges, develop new skills and grow in wisdom, stature and favour in an exciting and stimulating environment. They also develop their ability to work in teams and to develop deeper relationships with each other; they encourage independence and confidence in preparation for adult life and help pupils appreciate and respect God’s beautiful creation in a new and fresh way.
We use local activity centres such as Fairthorne Manor and Itchen Valley Country Park for Years 3 and 4 and Marwell Activity Centre or Rock UK for Years 5 and 6. Pupils may participate in activities such as archery, fencing, orienteering and pond dipping for the younger ones.
