Enrichment and Raising Aspirations at Queen Elizabeth’s Girls’ School, Pupil Premium
As a school we believe that enrichment activities and wider experiences beyond the curriculum are an important part of the all-round educational experience and so we invest part of the pupil premium funding in enrichment activities for the students across the year groups.
