We are delighted to announce that West Coventry Academy's College system was launched with the students during the week beginning 30th October.
The College system has been 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.
We recently spent a week of extended College assemblies with a focus on teambuilding activities. Students worked together across all ages to get to know their College peers and to build trusting relationships (see photos below).
Before Christmas there will be an inter-College Cross-Country and Benchball competition and we look forward to publishing the first College rewards points table!
We launched the College System with students taking part in team-building activities during their College assemblies including the Hula-Hoop Challenge and the 4 Chair Challenge.
The weather was on our side for our first inter-College cross country run. Well done to all staff and students who took part, cheered and wore their College colours!
