Enhanced Curricular

At Highfurlong we recognise the value that enhanced curricular activities have on the teaching and learning in school and the positive impact on pupils mental health and wellbeing.  They also allow us to provide enhanced experiences to our learners which are motivating and exciting, beyond the classroom.

Take a look at some of our recent activities.

World Book Day 2022

Pupils and staff dressed up for World Book Day in force. Parents came to into school to take part in activites and key stage 5 ran coffee shop and opened The Giftbox shop,.  There were competitions galore and a big read in the afternoon. There was a great buzz around school about reading and the day was enjoyed by all.

Schools Alive

In February some of our pupils were invited to perform at the Winter Gardens for Schools Alive. Hosted by the Blackpool Music Service, pupils
joined other schools on stage and did an amazing, energetic performance of the Greatest Showman.  They did an incredible job and we are very proud of them.

Circus Skills

In February the circus came to visit Triangle and Circle class. This linked into their topic of animals and the circus and they had a great time practicing circus skills in the hall.
