At Cornelius Vermuyden we pride ourselves on providing vibrant, varied and engaging opportunities for all pupils. Careful curriculum planning and the timing of our school day, allows the students of Cornelius to benefit from further opportunities in our enrichment programme. We hope students will seize the opportunity to engage in our fantastic programme that extends their learning beyond the classroom and promises to open them up to new thinking, new experiences and new opportunities. Enrichment is an incredibly important part of their education, which motivates them to rise to new challenges and prepares them for future success in the areas they're passionate about.
We are incredibly fortunate to benefit from a superb school building with phenomenal facilities available to all, and we encourage you to remain in school after the final bell and take advantage of all the amazing enrichment clubs and societies we have to offer. Every department in the school is excited to provide a wide range of challenging and fun extra curricular activities and we are certain there is something to suit everyone whatever their passion!!
Students in year groups seven and eight have had the opportunity to attend our enrichment fair, which provided the students with information about the extensive range of clubs available. They each received the enrichment brochure and were encouraged to sign up for at least one club. Of course the clubs are not exclusive to years seven and eight, they are open to all!!

Cornelius Vermuyden are an official member of NACE (National association of Able Children in England).
Not only does this partnership support our development of our highest achieving pupils, it supports the development of every pupil in the school. We are committed to ensuring that a high level of challenge exists in the classroom in every lesson and to help potential convert to success and happiness for our pupils. We are firm believers that "rising tides lift all ships" and that if all students have a daily diet of challenging experiences at school and beyond, then this will help support their educational and personal development as learners and as people. Yet, as our 2016 GCSE results showed, those who come to us classed as more able achieve incredible results – for example, Callum Cuthbert leaving the school with 11 A* grades is an achievement that is not just well above the national average in terms of progress and achievement, but one that should be celebrated in terms of the school's work with its high achieving pupils.
However, here at Cornelius Vermuyden, we promote the ethos that all children must be given access to a positive mindset in terms of their learning. The message is clear; all young people are capable of reaching any goal they set their mind to if they are challenged and show a positive attitude to self - improvement . Cornelius Vermuyden places challenge and the importance of a 'growth mindset' at the heart of its teaching and learning vision for our pupils and our association with NACE is supporting this commitment to all pupils at the school.
