At Brooke Weston Academy we enrich students’ learning by providing a range of opportunities including lectures from visiting professionals, educational challenges, projects and residentials.
Brooke Weston Academy students are encouraged to take an active part in community life. They perform at dance and musical events, visit residential homes, assist at animal shelters and help local primary children with sports activities. We also encourage them to consider those less fortunate than themselves. This is reinforced in assemblies and by mufti-day collections that raise money for local and national charities and good causes.
There are weekly clubs in subjects including dance, maths, chess, art and debating that take place after school and details of these are posted daily on the screens around the building.
Participation in the arts is also an important part of the Brooke Weston Academy experience. Each year, talented students have many opportunities to perform in concerts and dance shows organised by our excellent Performing Arts department. Our most recent production of ‘Grease’ was a huge success and involved more than 100 students and staff.
Older students may opt to join the very successful Brooke Weston Trust Combined Cadet Force (CCF) which teaches military skills and disciplines and allows students to join up with those from other schools across the Trust to take part in drills, firing exercises and training camps.
