‘I have come to give you life, life in all its fullness.’ (Ephesians 3:19)
At Cardinal Wiseman Catholic School we believe that learning transcends the boundaries of the traditional classroom. Consequently a key factor in all our students’ school life should be high-quality learning opportunities outside the classroom. These experiences should form an essential part of students’ learning and personal development, whatever their ability or circumstance, because such activities develop personal interests, self-confidence and a sense of achievement. They also assist young people in making informed decisions and often lead to meaningful long-term friendships based on a common interest. Our students’ most cherished memories of their time at school often come from such moments of enrichment outside the classroom. Therefore our school provides a rich and diverse range of wider learning opportunities:
Looking to the Future
Cardinal Wiseman Catholic School is always considering ways they can improve their wider learning and enrichment provisions and this year the school is introducing Enrichment Days where students have the chance to put their learning into context and get involved with hands on activities.
The school is also launching Activity Week, which will offer Key Stage Three students five days of outdoor activities at the end of the summer term. Year 7 students will go on a range of exciting day trips, whilst Year 8 students will head off abroad to develop their language skills. Year 9 students will be going to Colomendy Outdoor Education Centre to take part in some adventurous and fun activities such as raft building, caving and abseiling.
Students at Cardinal Wiseman Catholic School are provided with many exciting and unique wider learning opportunities - we think these experiences help form our students into the successful adults they become.
In 1012 the new and exciting Key Stage Three Activity Week
saw the regular timetable collapsed allowing students to take part in a variety of trips and activities.
This stimulating initiative gave our students the fantastic opportunity to learn outside the classroom and gain self-confidence and a sense of achievement. Research has proven that such experiences can have long term educational benefits as students are more motivated and determined to succeed when they return to school.
