Curriculum enrichment

At Whitehouse we aim for all of our pupils to access some form of extra-curricular activity throughout the school day. Extra-curricular lessons in subjects such as Music, Art and Sport help extend our children’s personal development and confidence beyond the classroom.

Each individual has the opportunity to develop their strengths and to discover new talents and interests. Whitehouse is pleased to be able to offer all its pupils an extensive range of extra-curricular activities, which may take place over the lunch time period, activities vary each term but during the year may include rugby, badminton, table tennis, construction, crafts, kickboxing and performing arts.

We are consistently looking at ways in which we can extend our offer to meet the requests of our pupils. We believe that these valuable opportunities should enrich the pupils’ learning experiences – developing skills, providing a sense of belonging, and providing fun and enjoyment.

Alongside our lunch time offers, Whitehouse have the opportunity of enriching the children’s day through:

  • Swimming Lessons

  • The Daily Mile

  • Inter-setting sports challenges

  • Gymnastics and dance

  • Food Technology

  • DJ sessions with the Noise academy
  • Steel Drums
