Students at Riverside College are encouraged to explore other interests during their time at College. The comprehensive enrichment programme at the College varies throughout the year to ensure it encourages students to experience a variety of both social and academic enrichment activities.
During 2015 our students took part in over 200 different enrichment activities, competitions and trips to increase their enjoyment of their studies and equip them with future success.
The College has great enrichment facilities including an all-weather MUGA (Multi Use Games Area) and a purpose built Enrichment Centre. The enrichment timetable also utilises the other college facilities including the Centre Stage Theatre, fully equipped salons and training kitchens.
