Curricular Enrichment

The curriculum at St Dominic’s School is enriched by our excellent range of outdoor facilities that are used to support pupils’ and students’ learning experiences. Activities such as the Forest School have been highly successful in helping pupils and students develop their self-esteem and 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 such as, Young Enterprise and the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme.

Lunchtime Clubs 

We offer many activities during lunch breaks on a daily basis which all students, pupils and staff are welcome to try. The pupil-led lunchtime clubs range from drama to fun with remote control cars.

Friday Afternoon Leisure Curriculum 

We currently offer eight options from football to dungeons and dragons, all of which encourage pupils and students to share common interests with others and develop new ones.

Cultural Experiences 

Through the year, we offer opportunities to experience and participate in a wide range of cultural and social activities. For example, in Humanities pupils and students could:

  • handle Roman artefacts on loan from Haslemere Museum in their classroom
  • meet a Viking re-enactor in the school’s woods
  • spend a morning exploring Medieval buildings at the Weald and Downland Museum
  • take an overnight trip into Norfolk to study the Norman Conquest
  • fly to Berlin for a three-day visit to immerse themselves in German history

Each term, we mark national moments and values, such as Remembrance observance and Red Nose day, culminating with a cultural experience for example, watching a professional theatre production, a musical concert, or attending sporting event.

 

My Son has made incredible progress emotionally and applies himself much better academically. The mentoring aspect is key to his progress.
