Enrichment is a vital part of life at WOA, we are committed to providing everyone with the opportunity to participate in a wide range of activities within and beyond the curriculum through our enrichment programme.

Enrichment opens doors and builds students cultural capital, facilitates engagement in the wider community and teaches important life-skills, above and beyond our normal curriculum requirements. We are committed to developing students’ social, moral, spiritual and cultural strengths together offering a holistic education that will allow them to succeed in education, beyond the classroom, in work, in life and in society.

We have developed a varied enrichment programme that contains a wide range of activities that every student can get involved in. We encourage each one of them to become fully engaged in the life of the Academy through in a wide variety of clubs, groups and activities.

We also offer a wide range of clubs and activities to support all of our students’ needs. These include dance, drama, music, sports like football, netball, gymnastics or trampolining, art clubs, reading, chess, calligraphy, photography clubs. We offer both bronze and silver D of E, opportunities to help in community cohesion. 

Students are  encouraged to participate in a variety of competitions and fund raising events for a range of charities. These include national reading competitions, story writing competitions, OAT sponsored events and charities such as Children in Need and Comic Relief.

We also make a pledge of entitlement to every student, which you can view following the link below.
