In our curriculum vision statement we say that we want students to have 'an appreciation of human creativity and achievement'. There are a multitude of ways that you can extend your learning about this; you might use educational resources online, do additional reading on a topic, watch documentaries, theatre productions and films, or take a virtual tour of a gallery or museum.
On this page you will find links to lots of these resources. We encourage all students to try as many as they are able; doing these activities will help your general knowledge as well as supporting you to know more about particular topics.
Some of these resources may require a payment; please speak with an adult before following such links.
You might want to start by joining one of our clubs. Go to the 'Clubs and activities' page to find out more.
