Enrichment/Events in 21/22

At Ashford College, we do a lot of enrichment for students and events, and over the past academic year (21/22), this has been bigger than ever!

During the past academic year of 2021/2022, Ashford College has also had a big focus on student enrichment and events. This allows the students to maybe try things that they wouldn't get the opportunity to do elsewhere, or experience other cultures, or even just have a fun day out. Some of the enrichment activities we do here are relevant to the Pathways that the students have chosen, and some are not. We have done a lot over the past year, and these are just some examples of events to give you an idea of what life at Ashford is really like.
