Year 12 students have an exciting and varied enrichment programme embedded in their timetable as soon as they start with us at Copthall. We work with universities and employers to offer workshops on higher education and apprenticeships to ensure that our students are well informed and inspired. Additionally Barnet Women’s institute volunteers provide creative workshops in a number of disciplines and The Department of Work and Pensions run employability skills to keep the students up to date. Our enrichment activities are designed specifically to give students a chance to develop new skills and expand their knowledge on careers and post 18 options. This year we have also offered volunteering opportunities for students in charity shops, clinics and hospitals, making a real difference to our local community.
