Basketball, mindfulness, yoga, robotics, and a virtual escape room were just some of the sessions on offer to our High Pavement A Level students last week (17th-20th May), as part of a fun-packed, four-day schedule of enrichment activities.

Through­out the week, more than 300 stu­dents took part in a range of extra-cur­ric­u­lar activ­i­ties and work­shops, organ­ised by the College’s Well­be­ing Team to encour­age stu­dents to make the most of all the Col­lege has to offer — from sport and well­be­ing to life, job and inter­view skills, and tips and advice on apply­ing to university. 

In a year which has meant our stu­dents have been unable to do all of the extra-cur­ric­u­lar activ­i­ties we offer in the nor­mal way, this week of off-timetable enrich­ment has been much-need­ed and a fan­tas­tic oppor­tu­ni­ty for our stu­dents to get active, try new things, and make new friends. 

 — Will Thomp­son (Not­ting­ham Col­lege Well­be­ing Co-Ordi­na­tor for Enrichment)

Thanks to our great work­ing rela­tion­ship with Not­ting­ham Trent Uni­ver­si­ty (NTU), locat­ed just around the cor­ner from our High Pave­ment Sixth Form, stu­dents were giv­en spe­cial per­mis­sion to access NTU’s Sports Hall facil­i­ties for the dif­fer­ent sports ses­sions through­out the week. 

First year A Lev­el stu­dent, Marie Estan­da, took part in foot­ball, bad­minton, table ten­nis, bas­ket­ball and CV writ­ing. She said:

I want to go into med­i­cine in the future so I’m focussed on my aca­d­e­m­ic stud­ies, but it’s also impor­tant to me that I stay fit and active. This week was a great bal­ance away from our usu­al lessons. I found the UCAS CV build­ing ses­sion real­ly ben­e­fi­cial too. This sup­port is so help­ful before apply­ing to university.

Yoga was a new expe­ri­ence for me and it was nice. The whole week has been fun and a good oppor­tu­ni­ty to get to know more peo­ple from dif­fer­ent courses.
