At The Rowans, we offer a lot more than just academic excellence. We offer a wide and exciting range of both academic and extra-curricular enrichment activities to all pupils, in both key stage 3 and key stage 4.
Enrichment supports pupils to develop their interests and abilities, provides valuable learning and life experiences, promotes independence and resilience, as well as building positive relationships.
All subject teachers at The Rowans include enrichment as part of their long term planning, in order to enhance learning. Trips, visits and in school workshops have all been planned for this academic year, such as the Lego robotics workshops for computer science, Emirates stadium tour for ASDAN, Canterbury Christ Church sports science lab visit for BTEC Sport and LEGOLAND trip for maths, along with many more.
Pupils are given opportunities during the year to visit places around the UK to support their classroom-based learning, including London and Yorkshire. Additionally, pupils take part in amazing activities during The Rowans activities week, such as; indoor skydiving, quad biking, go karting and rock climbing. Activities week is dedicated to enrichment for all year groups, where pupils choose from a wide range of activities and visits each day, all of which are excellent life experiences and create lasting memories.
Clubs and activities take place at lunchtime and after school, incorporating interests such as boxing, football, gym, STEM and Art. If a particular interest is not covered, then we will always try to support and facilitate. All of our clubs are free to attend.
