The WAT Pledge
At Great Wyrley Academy we endeavour to stretch, challenge and develop students academically, socially and personally. Therefore, we pledge to offer and expose all students to the following opportunities in order for them to become more successful in life.
At Great Wyrley Academy students will have the chance to experience and take part in a plethora of extra-curricular and enrichment activities.

There are many enrichment opportunities each week that occur before school, at lunchtime, after school and at the weekends. Aspiring to be a part of this provision will allow students to develop important life skills such as time management, resilience and commitment.
Our evidence shows that this commitment to extra-curricular provision leads to increased self-esteem and supports our students to develop relationships and prepares them for their next steps in life.
