Enrichment Curriculum

Maiden Erlegh School in Reading is proud to be able to offer a wide and varied selection of enrichment learning for our students outside of the core curriculum.
Enrichment activities are organised through Curriculum Departments. These include a full range of sporting, cultural and artistic activities; delivered during regular clubs and activities related to specific subjects.  In addition, trips and visits during the school day, in the evening and over longer periods involving overnight stays all serve to add value to the taught curriculum.
