Enrichment Activities

All pupils have the opportunity to take part in an unparalleled range of supervised activities both on and off-campus.



We help each child achieve their best by getting to know them, their interests and how they learn most effectively. Extensive additional facilities develop pupils’ independent thinking, interpersonal skills, and confidence, giving them everything they need to succeed in our rapidly changing world.

Unparalleled choice

We have our own high ropes course and climbing wall; there is biking or country pursuits at Bedgebury Pinetum; chef’s school; bushcraft; symphony orchestra; archery; pottery; school production; horse riding at Hemsted Forest; street dance; life saving; golf; sailing at Bewl Water; cake decorating; softball; art; climbing; pilates; model making; High Flyers English or Maths… the list goes on and on.

Extensive opportunities

We also offer extensive opportunities for travel to broaden our pupils’ understanding and horizons. Recent excursions have included a business trip to New York, geography field trip to Iceland, art trip to Rome; not to mention month-long ‘True Adventure’ expeditions to South Africa and the Himalayas. Skiing is an important bi-annual fixture, while overseas tours for many of our Sports teams and a new layer to competition.

Duke of Edinburgh’s Award

Bethany’s enrichment programme perfectly supports the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme, widely recognised as the best personal development programme for young people. We are one of the few schools in the region licensed to operate the award independently, with a 100% completion rate for the highest level of achievement, the Gold Award.
