Enrichment

Enrichment is a huge part of school life.

This is often some of the experiences we remember the most and can provide students with fantastic opportunities, these experiences push us out of our comfort zone and equip us with skills we can transfer into further learning and outside of the school environment.

The staff at RFSS offer a wide variety of different opportunities ranging from Duke of Edinburgh Awards to STEM clubs, Equality club to learning sign language with a wide variety of clubs in-between. Staff also offer homework clubs and interventions to support our student’s academic progression as well as developing wider skills.

At RFSS we believe that 

learning should extend 

beyond the classroom.

Clubs are offered throughout the week both at lunch time and after school. Please speak to the staff involved for more information. The timetable is reviewed each term to ensure that we are offering a wide variety of clubs. We have a proud history of entering both local, regional and national competitions and we have had some great success in sporting events and Robotics, where we have represented the region at national fixtures. Our termly Music concerts and recitals have always been well supported by students and parents showcasing the diverse skills that our students (and staff) possess.

All of the clubs hit our six core values of Endeavour, Respect, Kindness, Collaboration, Resilience and Curiosity. We also value the place that Enrichment sits within our curriculum, with all subjects planning within their schemes of learning opportunities for Enriching their curriculum so that all students’ experiences make their time at RFSS a time to remember.

Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award


Rugby Free Secondary School were very excited to announce the launch of the Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award this year for the current Year 9 cohort. The Duke of Edinburgh Award, founded in 1956 by Prince Phillip, is delivered in over 130 countries worldwide. The award aims to inspire, guide and support young people in their self-development and recognise their achievements. It is a fantastic opportunity for young people to get involved in. The award requires young people to complete four sections:- Physical, Skill, Volunteering and Outdoor Expedition (two days, one night). Students will be expected to complete two sections for three months, one section for six months and a practice and final expedition. Students have a wide range of activities to choose from to complete each section. Ideas can be found on the DofE display board in school or by typing ‘Duke of Edinburgh Programme Ideas’ into Google Search. Rugby Free has a variety of extracurricular activities on offer which would allow students to complete all of their sections with help from school. At Rugby Free, students will have the opportunity to complete their Bronze Award in year 9, Silver Award in year 10 and Gold Award in year 12.
