Enrichment

We are proud of the range of activities and events that we offer at Wallington High School for Girls, all dedicated to developing important skills that complement your daughter’s academic study.

As part of our enrichment programme we dedicate specific days when all students are off timetable to enjoy the varied activities on offer.  This year these days are  Friday 23 October 2015,  Wednesday 23 March 2016 and the last week of term -  Monday 11 to Friday 15 July 2016. 

This year our students will be participating in team building exercises, a Forensic Science Day, a PE visit to Ham, a scavenger hunt across London, visiting Guildford Spectrum, Bletchley Park as well as Gallery and museum visits and much more.
