College System

The WCA College System was launched across the school in October 2017. It was set up to promote team spirit, leadership, responsibility, care and empathy for others, charitable giving combined with a strong sense of healthy competition.

Every student and every member of staff will be a member of a College and pupils will stay in their college until they reach the end of Year 11. There are four colleges and these have within them tutor groups from a mixture of Years 7-11.

As we reflect upon our first year with the College system there is much to celebrate.  Students across all year groups have participated in a number of inter-College competitions including Cross Country, Benchball, Football and Rounders.  Cross Country winners were Mercia and Benchball was tied with both Warwick and Mercia taking the top spot.  The boys football tournament was highly competitive with Godiva and Mercia sharing first place.  The girls rounders tournament was incredibly close, with Mercia coming out as the winning College.

The charity focus for the Summer Term was Rosie’s Rainbow Pantry.   We are incredibly proud that together we managed to raise over £800 and fill over 100 boxes.

To end our summer term we held our very own WCA Bake Off.  All Colleges competed to bake and decorate cupcakes with the winning College being Warwick.

The culmination of the College events calendar was Sports Day.  There were a variety of track and field events, all of which were hotly contested.  The final results were 4th Warwick with 918 points, 3rd Leofric with 943 points, 2nd Godiva with 970 points and the winners were Mercia with 1005 points. Congratulations to every single student whether they participated or supported.  A great day was had by both staff and students.

We have recruited a College Head Boy, and College Head Girl across all Colleges as well as Sports Captain, Charity Captain and College Ambassadors to work with their College Leaders to organise, plan and promote a wide variety of College events.

There is a College Cup awarded to the College which accrues the most points across all College events excluding Sports Day.  We are proud to announce the results below.

Big congratulations to all students who participated in all of the inter-College events and those who enthusiastically supported their College.
