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, the small animal farm, Young Enterprise and the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme.
