At London Brookes College, we believe that it is important to educate the whole person. In addition to our rigorous approach to GCSE and A Level exam preparation, we have significantly developed and expanded our enrichment programme for the 2015/2016 academic year. Through a wide-ranging programme of events, trips, talks, lectures and activities, we have been working on producing well-rounded people as well as students who attain high results.
Our school trips have taken students to the Imperial War Museum, The House of Lords, The Clink Museum as well as the Institute for Chartered Accountants.
Talks and Lectures
Our talks and lectures programme has includes speakers on a wide variety of subjects. The aim of these talks is to allow students the opportunity to meet, discuss, and ask probing questions to graduates working in many professional fields. This has allowed LBC students to think through the real-world implications of the decisions they make while completing their UCAS applications.
Talks and topics have included:
- Student Finance – Mr Ben Churchill, Goldsmiths College.
- Studying Business Management – Ms Freshta Seiffy, former LBC alumni.
- Working in the Arts – Mr Jotee Dhanjal, painter and artist
- Wings of Hope, charity presentation for GCSE students
GCSE Cognitive Development and Study Skills
Our GCSE students have been participating in educational and fun Friday enrichment events in which they get to relax and develop aspects of themselves that
do not always feature in the academic subjects. We have had enrichment events including: communication skills, lateral thinking abilities, general knowledge, vocabulary development, crosswords, quizzes, and guitar lessons. There have also been sessions on creative approaches to time management, making study timetables and brainstorming
