on the number and range of extra curricular activities on offer to our
students. By extending their learning to outside of the classroom, students
have the opportunity to expand their horizons. We strongly recommend that all
students supplement their academic studies by participating in at least one

Enrichment Programme: Visits and Events
At Wallington High School for Girls we recognise
the importance of learning outside of the classroom and the impact these
experiences have on students’ development. We therefore have five dedicated
Enrichment Days each year, one in the Autumn term, one in the Spring term and
three days in the Summer term. During this time, all students will be off
timetable and will therefore be able to enjoy the activities on offer, knowing
they will not be missing any lessons. We aim to provide an Enrichment programme
which covers a wide range of skills and experiences balancing off-site visits
with exciting activities in school.
Parents will be asked to cover any additional
costs of an event or visit which the school may incur; any cost for a visit is
kept to a minimum, taking into consideration best value for money, established
reputations and wherever possible using Transport for London’s free school
travel for pre-arranged small group bookings. Should we receive insufficient
funds the visit or event may not go ahead and therefore to secure all bookings
please adhere to the payment schedule. If there are any financial difficulties, please
refer to our Charges and Remissions Policy on the school website.

Enrichment programme for the year, please click here. Please be aware that this is subject to
change. Further details on our Enrichment programme will be sent home via email
closer to the dates, with information on how to pay through sQuid. Please note that the school adheres to the
deadlines it sets for permission slips and payments for all visits and events
and that late returns cannot be accepted.
