The Enrichment programme is designed to add to the breadth of the curriculum with a carousel of activities appropriate to the age of the children.
Groups of pupils (usually a quarter of each year group) take part in the varied activities once a week throughout the Autumn and Spring Terms. The courses offered change each year to reflect the expertise and passions of the staff involved.

The Enrichment programme continues into the Summer Term, but with different activities in many cases. All children in Years 3 to 8 are taken to swim in the pool at the neighbouring Pangbourne College while our own indoor pool nears completion. Back at St Andrew’s, there is expert tuition for everyone in taekwondo, and further activities including boules/pétanque, dance, chess and traditional board games, while our LAMDA coach guides the Year 8 pupils as they prepare to tread the boards in the annual leavers’ play.
