Lunch / After School Clubs
At Hungerhill school we offer our students as many enrichment opportunities as possible to broaden their cultural capital, boost their academic skills and social skills and improve their well-being.
Research suggests that students who participate in enrichment activities have greater self-esteem and resilience: this engagement in enrichment activities can also support academic achievements. It also gives students the opportunity to make new friends and get to know staff who might not teach them in the timetabled lessons, helping with relationship building and communication skills.
Enrichment activities provide a rich array of positive experiences which may be particularly significant for students struggling to succeed in the classroom. Once a student has experienced achievement in one area, there is a tendency for it to then spread into other areas of school life. Enrichment activities may provide a valuable catalyst for our students to create a sense of identity and belonging to Hungerhill, offering them a meaningful experience that allows our students to excel, thrive and succeed academically but also outside of the classroom.
At Hungerhill, we are proud to offer an extensive variety of Enrichment Clubs and activities which run either at lunchtime or after school. The programme is constantly evolving and we would love to hear ideas from our students about other clubs they would like to see!
