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.
We have funded the following enrichment and aspirational activities:

Two sessions ‘Ace your exams' and ‘Memory and Mnemonics’
