Enrichment Opportunities

At Murray Park, we place great emphasis on

enriching and enhancing the learning of our

students by encouraging them to try new

challenges and experiences that will develop them

as individuals beyond their academic studies.

We believe that school should provide good

memories which last a lifetime and that learning

takes place in many different ways and in many

different environments. We therefore offer a wide

range of extra-curricular activities, including trips

and visits and a wide range of clubs, activities

and opportunities so that students can develop

interests and talents beyond the formal curriculum.

Additionally, many of our subject areas offer

clubs and activities and we have a well- planned

sequence of ‘Enrichment Days’ for all year

groups, where students are able to develop their

independence and creativity by working on day-

long team projects.

Passionate about Arts

Creative arts play an important part in the life of

the school. Every encouragement is given to our

young musicians, artists, actors and technicians.

Students participate enthusiastically in termly

concerts, plays and at a host of events within the

school and beyond. All of these serve to enhance

their experience of the requirements, joys and

terrors of public performance! The school has

excellent facilities, including a suite of purpose-

built classrooms, a recording studio and drama

studio.

‘A rich programme of after-school and out-of-school activities gives

students good opportunities to develop their skills and talents’

“I believe that the support Murray Park offers each child and their

parents through this crucial stage in their lives, makes for a successful

and smooth transition from primary to secondary school”
