Extended Curriculum

Ellesmere College believes in ensuring young people attending the school should have the same opportunities as their peers to access their local community, attend activities of their choice and have opportunities to follow their personal interests.

Ellesmere College provides the following opportunities for our young people:

  • Our youth club on Tuesdays between 3.20 and 5.30 pm provides an opportunity for our pupils from year 10 onwards to access a range of sports, activities and social experiences including their independence skills.
  • Ellesmere College works in partnership with other providers to develop activity clubs. We currently link with Sidekick Dance which meets at the Curve theatre every Wednesday during term time at Curve Theatre at 4:30-6:00pm with a bus service from the school to the Curve. We also have a basketball club on Thursday between 3.20 and 4.30 pm.
  • Ellesmere College also provides opportunities for our young people to showcase their talents including accessing sporting fixtures, community dance, arts and music events.


Eco Schools

The Eco-Schools programme provides exciting opportunities for students in curriculum time as well as outside the classroom. Learning outside of the classroom (LOTC) has been identified as ‘memorable activities leading to memorable learning and positively contributing to pupil safety’. LOTC provides positive benefits to all groups of young people and supports a rich, relevant, broad and balanced curriculum.

What is Eco-Schools?

Eco-Schools is a global programme engaging 19.5 million children across 67 countries, making it the largest educational programme on the planet.

For nearly 25 years Eco-Schools has been empowering children to drive change and improve their environmental awareness through the simple Seven-Step framework in order to achieve the international Eco-Schools Green Flag award.

Eco-Schools develops pupils’ skills, raises environmental awareness, improves the school environment and creates financial savings for schools as well as a whole host of other benefits.
