Enrichment

Welcome to the Kirk Balk Enrichment Program Page! The extensive enrichment opportunities available at Kirk Balk are free for students to attend and will give your child the opportunity to achieve their Kirk Balk Pledges, meet new people, try new activities and support their academic progress.

The enrichment timetable contains information on which year groups the clubs are open to, and the day they run, all activities finish at 3.30pm. Please take time to look through the booklet and discuss with your child which clubs they will be attending.

There is an expectation that students in Y10 and Y11 attend all their after-school sessions in order to maximize their academic potential.
