Millfield Activities Programme (MAP)
MAP encourages pupils to enrich their lives by exploring interests outside their normal school curriculum. With all Millfield’s superb facilities to call upon, as well as the expertise and enthusiasm of our staff, we are able to introduce pupils to an exciting range of pursuits. Indoor and outdoor, practical and creative, adventurous and reflective, mentally and physically challenging, there is a rich variety of activities to choose from.
In Year 9, pupils undertake a balanced selection of these pursuits within a structured programme, as well as choosing an activity freely from more than 80 activities. From Year 10 onwards, all pupils may choose freely from the activities offered. Some youngsters take on the exciting challenge of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme or the Ten Tors Challenge; others prefer community service, environmental conservation, adventure sports, computer clubs, academic societies or artistic pursuits. All Year 10 and Lower Sixth pupils must take part in at least one activity, but many choose more. Even in the main examination years – when participation is not compulsory – many pupils take advantage of the opportunities offered.
Pupils usually find the Activities Programme an enjoyable process of self-discovery. Hidden skills and aptitudes often come to light, and many pupils gain a real sense of achievement from success in unexpected areas. It is also great fun – and an excellent way to make friends.
