Curriculum Enrichment Clubs

Curriculum Enrichment Clubs

We are delighted that we are able to offer a wide range of after school enrichment clubs to our children.  They are run by staff from our school or by qualified external instructors and take place after school.  The broad and diverse programme of extra-curricular/enriching activities offered by all departments beyond lesson time. We offer a range of after school enrichment clubs that include physical activity clubs and creative clubs. The after school enrichment clubs vary from term to term. Some are offered to all children and others are selective.

What is the Aim of the Curriculum Enrichment?

We want every child at Holy Cross to participate in our Enrichment Clubs as we have seen that students who take an active role in the enrichment activities display higher levels of self-esteem, a heightened sense of belonging, increased attendance and develop positive friendship groups. This can help improve the students’ moral and social development, health  & wellbeing and academic performance. You will see from the range of clubs and opportunities that we have on offer that there really is something for everyone.

Curriculum Enrichment Club Costs

Some clubs may incur fees depending on running costs. Our school will always do its best to support children by keeping fees to a minimum.  See the timetable of activities below for Enrichment Club prices per session .  These can be paid via your child’s IRIS App see more information here Payments and Communications.

Football Training

Football training runs after school every Wednesday 3.30pm until 4.30pm.

Girls Suggett Shield Football Finals 22nd November 2022

30 seconds – what can you do in 30 seconds? You could feed the cat, text a friend saying, “thinking of you”, have a glass of water or try to score a goal, but more on that later…  It all started with our trip to the Girls Suggett shield Finals at Sutton Lawns on the 3G pitches, where we faced Morven Park (a 1-1 draw), then Broomhill (a 2-0 win) and Greenwood (a 1-0 win) in our group stages.  We comfortably finished top off with goals from Freya, Emily and 2 from Suzie, we then progressed to the semi-final, where we faced a tough Annesley team who finished second in their group.  With games on the day only 10 minutes long played one way the girls dominated the match with Suzie popping in the only goal to take us to the final with a 1-0 win.  With the floodlights on and light drizzle falling we kicked off the Final against our Hucknall rivals Hillside, the play went from goal to goal with both teams having chances of scoring and this is where the 30 seconds comes into our story.  With three well timed passes Hillside managed to score only the second goal of the tournament passed our brilliant goalkeeper Kudiwa. We restarted the game and pushed forward but with only 30 seconds left it wasn’t enough time to get the equaliser and the game ended 0-1 with Hillside taking the Trophy home.  The girls have come home with a runners-up medal and should be very proud of their efforts in the tournament.  Well done!  Mr Pascoe (Site Manager/Football Coach)
