Enrichment & Partnerships

Enrichment is an important part of daily life at Charnwood College.

We have strong links with the other academies in the David Ross Education Trust, and work closely with partners to provide new experiences for our students.

As a David Ross Education Trust (DRET) academy we believe that enrichment can help to raise academic standards, enhance performance and teach life skills that will equip our students for an ever-changing world.


Secondary enrichment is carefully selected to equip young people with additional experiences and skills that will not only give them a head start in their adult life but also enhance their CVs, applications and interviews in competitive careers and higher education markets.


What sort of skills does enrichment teach?


  • Determination to succeed
  • Teamwork
  • Winning and losing with grace
  • Respect for others
  • Tolerance
  • Confidence in yourself
  • A sense of fun and enjoyment
  • Creativity
  • Focus and attitude
  • Health benefits


Academies across the Trust are encouraged to work collaboratively to make the most of the opportunities on offer and Charnwood College regularly participates in these activities.


In addition to our own partners, the Trust has partnerships with a number of organisations that work with us to provide opportunities in music, drama, art and other cultural pursuits. These activities and events are designed to enhance academic studies and to provide opportunities that many students may not otherwise have access to. 


Some of the partners that we have worked with include the Shakespeare Schools Festival, The Kalisher Trust, the University of Nottingham, the Outward Bound Trust and Lincoln Castle, to name a few.
