Curricular Enrichment

The curriculum at St Dominic’s is further enhanced by the school’s excellent range of outdoor facilities which are used to support pupils’ and students’ learning experiences on a daily basis. Activities such as the “Forest School” have been highly successful in helping pupils develop their self-esteem and their ability to form good working relationships with others. Pupils and students also have the opportunity to take part in a range of activities to develop their skills through being involved in, for example, Young Enterprise and the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme.

We offer lots of fun activities during the lunch breaks on a daily basis which all students, pupils and staff are welcome to try. Some of the activities on offer are: ICT Club, Street Dance, Climbing wall, Chess Club, Girls Club (Girls from King Edwards School join us for activities), Remote Control Car Club, Running, Drama, Air Fix Club, Basketball, Cycling, Walking and Circus Skills.

Sixth Form Students are actively encouraged to develop their individual interests and broaden their range of leisure interests including: Swimming, Art and craft, Drama, Football, Cookery, Archery, Walking, Games on the Common, Scouts, Air Cadets and Gardening. The Sixth Form also have the opportunity to access external specialist events such as drama workshops.

 

The residential special school provides highly effective services that consistently exceed the standards of good. The actions of the school contribute to significantly improved outcomes and positive experiences for children and young people. Ofsted – March 2019
