Enrichment, Trips & Visits

What is Enrichment and what do we aim to achieve through Enrichment?

  • Enrichment provides our students with experiences and opportunities they may not necessarily get outside of school. Breckenbrough feels that these are so important to their development that we give a full Wednesday afternoon of teaching time to these activities. This time is also crucial to the school’s Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) development of the students.
  • “Our vision is to improve the Quality of Life for all our students in becoming healthy, happy and successful adults.”

During Wednesday afternoons we cover a huge bank of lessons based outside of the regular classroom environment. The students at Breckenbrough can attain certificates in different subjects to credit their achievements.

Each student can achieve at least two-unit award scheme certificates every term. Staff are encouraged to create a good working relationship with students and to work with staff they would not usually work with, giving them the opportunity to grow in confidence.

This will in turn help them progress throughout the Key Stages at Breckenbrough School.

Staff stay in the same groups so they will deliver the specific curriculum for each year group throughout the year.

Breaks and Lunchtimes

Extended periods of unstructured time can often be difficult for our students. As part of alleviating some of these anxieties, lunch time activities are available for all students to participate in. Some of the activities on offer include football, gaming/coding, lego, art and using the gym. In addition, there are specific areas of the school open to the students should they require a safe and familiar space with staff support during breaks and lunchtimes.


Being based in the North Yorkshire countryside but within easy access of the A1 and A19, we have access to a huge variety of locations ‘on our doorstep’ and a little bit further allowing us the opportunity to offer our students a vast choice of educational, sporting and activity based locations.

The links shown on local site information within this section, list places we regularly use and gives a taste of the trips offered.

As well as local area trips, we also offer overseas trips to students, including an annual ski trip to Italy for the Y10, Y11 and 6th Form and a Y9 language and history trip to France.
