Your time at college is an important period in your life where you will not only gain qualifications but you will also develop skills and build on experiences that you may not normally have the opportunity to do.

During your time at Prior you will have the opportunity to participate in a range of activities beyond your lessons, designed to really capture your interest or enhance your life experience. Some of these activities will be ‘one off’ opportunities such as foreign exchanges, work experience, charity events or competitions. Others will be ongoing weekly activities such as sport and societies or the Students’ Union.

There are many exciting Enrichment opportunities.  These activities are free, open to all students and there is no limit on the number of sessions you attend. They are also a good way to meet new friends and will look excellent on your CV.

There are lots of benefits of our Enrichment programme.  It can help you let off steam, improve your mental health as well as your physical fitness.  It can give you the chance to learn something new, contribute to the running of the college, pick up an old hobby, help the local community, make new friends, or just learn to be yourself and have fun.

It can be anything from Pie & Cheese Club to learning a new language or driving theory support.

Please have a look at our Enrichment timetable below, then follow the links underneath for more information.
