In school enrichment aims to take the basic curriculum subjects and expand them, looking at them in more depth or from a different perspective. We offer enrichment through after school clubs, arts week, visits to Colfox for specific enrichment days, music experiences, school trips, science days and book weeks.
We also encourage children to do their own research into a subject by reading additional books or working on the internet.
“Enrichment basically makes a subject more meaningful or more rewarding for a gifted child, and allows them to look at in more depth,” says Julie Taplin, Deputy Chief Executive of the National Association for Gifted Children (NAGC). “All children benefit from enrichment, but for gifted and talented children it can give them opportunities to explore and use their imagination. Enrichment is important not only at school, but also at home. “
Exeter University offers enrichment days for Primary school children the days on offer can be booked online by parents
There is also a creative writing course available for children at Killerton House in December.
