Swanage 2017

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 Thursday 13 October 2016,  Thursday 23 March 2017 and the last week of term -  Monday 17 to Friday 21 July 2017. 

This year our students will be participating in team building exercises, a Forensic Science Day, a PE visit to Ham, a Shakespeare Bus Tour, a History Walk in London, a Technology Day as well as Gallery and museum visits and much more.
