Enrichment

Enrichment is a fundamental element in terms of learning and teaching at Raine’s Foundation School. Importantly, it also forms the foundation of student experience beyond the classroom. We recognise the importance of offering a meaningful, exciting and innovative enrichment programme; which both motivates and promotes independence and resilience in our young people. We believe our enrichment opportunities allow our students to appreciate and respect other people; both on a local and global level. We aim to create a platform for students to develop and enhance their skills and attributes for the future.
