We want you to make the most of the time that you spend at the College. As well as giving you the opportunity to achieve high academic standards, we also offer a range of additional activities to complement the academic programme.
These activities are offered at different times throughout the year; some may last all year, while others may last only a few weeks. Some activities are available only in timetabled blocks, but many are available at other times, including lunchtimes. The activities available give you the flexibility to mix and match activities to fit in with your academic programme, and will give you the opportunity to meet new people, try something new and maybe even learn new skills.
Our range of enrichment activities are designed to boost the enjoyment, health and employability of our students and are organised through the TR Additional Courses (TRAC) and TR Active programme.
There is a varied programme of additional courses such as first aid, sign language, College production, choir, student newspaper, counselling awareness, sports massage and the debating group, where students have the opportunity to develop their skills in non-traditional study.
We offer the Duke of Edinburgh Scheme allowing students to develop their skills through physical, skill and volunteering sections, culminating in an expedition to the Peak District.
We also offer numerous trips and visits offering students the opportunity to explore different cultures, visit different continents and get involved in helping other communities.
These include residential trips to Iceland, Skiing in Europe, a football trip to New York, a South African Safari and community project work in South Africa – all this in addition to trips to France, Spain and Germany for our language students.
This year, the College will be supporting Teenage Cancer Trust as our chosen charity and students will be involved in many fun-filled fundraising activities and events.
You will be provided with details of the activities soon after you enrol and if you think there are other activities that could be offered just let us know!
Activities that have been offered in the past are as diverse as:
Certificate in Health & Safety
Dance / Aerobics
