Ensuring Equality of Access to the Curriculum

A key aspect of our ethos at Bohunt School Worthing is our belief that we need to develop memorable learning experiences. This includes curriculum trips and visits. We also believe that all students benefit greatly from a residential experience. The Pupil Premium will be used to support students whose families are on low incomes to access all of these programmes.

We believe that talents such as sport, music, dance and drama will only develop into a lifelong passion by providing a high quality extended curriculum. The student premium will also help all students access this curriculum and help students discover their talents. For example:

  • Support for Duke of Edinburgh Award
  • Free Music Tuition
  • Access to Sports Clubs
  • Support for Educational Trips
