Students on stage takign part in a college performance

Holy Cross offers a wide range of Enrichment activities which you can take part in, in addition to your academic studies. Although this is completely optional, we believe in creating a balance between studying for your qualifications and doing something you find personally rewarding.


Some examples of the activities on offer range from:

  • Subject related educational visits and field trips
  • Competitive and recreational sport
  • Music, dance and drama
  • Charity and Chaplaincy based work
  • Work experience and volunteer opportunities
  • College groups e.g. Physics Club, Debate Club etc.

Enrichment Week

In the summer, the timetable is suspended and several days are dedicated to Enrichment activities where you will be able to join in a whole host of different pursuits along with the whole of Holy Cross - staff and students.

Holy Cross does encourage you to get involved in activities, as many universities and employers will want to know what interests you and that you have interests beyond your studies. It also gives you the opportunity to meet different people and learn something new. Whatever you choose you will find plenty of opportunity to broaden your horizons and get the most out of your time at Holy Cross.
