Enrichment Opportunities

Worthing High School Residential Enrichment Provision Map

Aim - For our enrichment opportunities to have further supported our students in being prepared to participate and contribute to life in modern Britain.  

Focus Days

A focus day is a time where students come off their academic timetable and participate in workshops or trips. The aim is to provide students with experiences outside of the classroom. They also provide students opportunities to continue to address SMSC (social, moral, spiritual cultural), PSHE (personal, social and health education), British Values and career topics. There are three focus days interspersed throughout the academic year, with one per term.

Residential trip opportunities

The residential trips set out below are part of the wider enrichment offer available to your son/daughter. The costs and durations are provisional and will be confirmed at time of launch.
