Coming to college shouldn’t be purely about academic achievements and we have an extensive enrichment programme giving you the opportunity to do more than just study and sit exams.

The best thing is that we have also provided time for you to do this: at Xaverian, Wednesday afternoon has a dedicated enrichment and activities slot, and enrichment also takes place throughout the college week. We also pride ourselves on delivering activities and events which meet the needs of our students.

Through our Student Council we regularly speak to our students to gain feedback and find out about their experience of our activities and events. If there is something new that they would like introducing, and we have the capacity and resources to do it, we’ll make it happen.

There are many opportunities for enrichment that take place in all departments throughout the college year.
