Enrichment is everyone’s favourite subject, and it’s coming to George Mitchell Primary Phase soon.
From September, children in Key Stage 2 will be able to choose from a range of 5 week courses on offer each half term, from Fashion Design to First Aid. Children will cover the 6 areas of Enrichment learning over the course of the year, earning ‘credits’ towards a Children’s University Degree.
