Primary Enrichment Outreach Programme

Primary Enrichment Courses for KS2 children

Primary Enrichment Courses for KS2 children

A programme of events designed for pupils in KS2, offering exciting and inspiring learning opportunities across national curriculum subjects.

We offer an exciting and comprehensive range of one-day activities for children across Key Stage 2, from Years 3 to 6, across the Autumn, Spring and Summer term.

Our programme aims to encourage and develop the progression, attainment and aspiration of school age pupils and is specifically aimed at engaging pupils who demonstrate a particular interest, skill or potential in specific subject areas. Our hope is that pupils further their passion and understanding for their subject; feel inspired by practical, hands-on learning activities and meet like-minded peers, all within the context of a Higher Education setting.

Our Enrichment Programme was first established in 2007 in collaboration with Bath and Plymouth Universities, and solely at the University of Exeter since 2010. In that time we have brought together the knowledge, expertise and experience of our tutors and lecturers to provide high quality teaching and learning experiences.

Past courses have included such activities as creative writing about nature, Taiko Drumming, Forensic Science and Geometry taught through the art of Origami. We are always interested to hear your feedback regarding our courses, so do get in touch with us if you have any ideas for new courses!

Our Spring 2020 programme is available to view below and download here: Primary Enrichment Outreach brochure Spring 2020‌.
