Academic Enrichment

Many of the activities will complement and enhance the academic experience of our pupils outside the timetabled curriculum. Academic societies and clubs, such as Debating, help to form the backbone of day to day life outside the classroom at Solihull. Other activities that take place during the school day help to create a series of opportunities where pupils can explore new ideas, learn new skills or simply have a space in which to develop new interests and passions. Lectures by visiting speakers and a wide range of trips and visits aim to inspire pupils and to help foster a sense of a love for learning.  

The academic enrichment programme draws on many areas of school life and Mrs J Francis, Head of Academic Enrichment ( oversees this ever changing and exciting area of school life.
