There’s a wide range of enrichment activities to choose from here at Carmel. Some are offered to students who study a particular subject, but many others are open to all. Students can take part in activities that complement their academic studies or try something different and develop new skills. With a wide range of enrichment & skills opportunities on offer, our students are spoilt for choice.
In addition, there are around 70 subject trips and visits each year both in the UK and abroad. Students are also encouraged to do some work experience or volunteering. They can get support with this from our Work Experience Co-ordinator who has helped to arrange over 400 placements in the last 18 months.
Whatever your future plans may be, whether it’s university, an apprenticeship or employment, these additional experiences are extremely valuable as they can help you stand out from the crowd!
“Students benefit from an extensive range of additional activities that build their self-confidence and self-awareness exceptionally well.” Ofsted June 2019
