AT RICHARD TAUNTON SIXTH FORM COLLEGE, OUR ENRICHMENT PROGRAMME ENCOURAGES YOU TO EXPLORE YOUR INTERESTS AND DEVELOP SKILLS THAT ARE HIGHLY VALUED BY UNIVERSITIES AND EMPLOYERS.

Each year our enrichment offer varies depending on the interests of our students so be sure to let us know what you would like to get involved with during your pre-enrolment interview. If you’d like to start up a club that is not listed here we’ll always help you get it off the ground!

Our highly-anticipated Enrichment Fair takes place in September and will give you an idea of what activities are on offer. In the meantime, take a look at some of the enrichment activities that have been on offer over the past couple of years.
