Our curriculum is enriched by activities that make Greenshaw a dynamic and exciting place to learn. There is one period a fortnight dedicated to enrichment activities. There is an extensive programme of educational visits offered to students that includes field trips for geography and biology. Trips to museums, art galleries and the theatre enhance students’ learning. Visiting experts such as lawyers, scientists and journalists bring their knowledge of careers and employment into the classroom. There is a group of sixth form students working towards the popular Silver Duke of Edinburgh award.
The school has an expedition programme. Teams of students work together to plan and fund-raise for challenges on other continents. Recent expeditions to Nepal, Honduras, Ecuador, Morocco, Borneo, Peru and Tanzania have given students opportunities to meet people across the globe and understand the issues facing them.
The PE department runs a sixth form games afternoon, where a diverse range of sporting activities are on offer. All sixth formers are encouraged to take part in physical recreation as an outlet to their academic studies, but other activities such as charity work are available as an option.
