There’s so much to accomplish at Hopwood Hall College – both in and out the classroom. This is why we’re delighted to offer a broad enrichment programme that allows our students to spread their wings beyond just their course. It's just one of the reasons why our learners love coming to campus each day!

When it comes to the exciting activities we offer, you’ll find that there really is something for everyone. We realise that there's no such thing as 'one size fits all' when it comes to our college community. Therefore, we've got options for all passions, interests and personalities.

There is so much to choose from, including the coveted Duke of Edinburgh Award. We are proud to be a licensed organisation who can provide this all-important accolade, which is designed to develop students' leadership, teamwork, communication, self-motivation, confidence and consideration skill. We are thrilled that our learners have this opportunity!

The Duke of Edinburgh Award is highly recognised and has a proven record for turning the heads of employers and universities. If you've got your sights set on landing your dream job or going onto Higher Education, then this award could be the perfect stepping stone to getting there.

Meanwhile, weekly events like Sing Your Heart Out – where students gather for a 15-minute singalong in our dazzling Hopwood – are very popular as they give students an opportunity to have fun and meet new people from across the college.

We also offer more digital activities than ever before. From video tutorials and online wellbeing planners to thought-provoking documentaries and films of the week, we’ll keep you connected outside of lessons.

We've got much more to choose from too. The below list is just a small snapshot of how you could spend your days between lessons. Which one of these activities take your fancy?

When on campus you'll be able to find out about all that week's exciting enrichment from our friendly Enrichment and Engagement team. You'll also find weekly activity timetables shared on the Hopwood Life app or itslearning.

Meanwhile, if there's an activity that you'd love to try but we don't currently offer then please do let us know. We love to hear suggestions from our students and are more than happy to incorporate new things into our constantly growing enrichment programme. Simply email us at:
