Extracurricular and Enrichment Activities

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 a wide range of extracurricular and enrichment opportunities in order for them to become more successful in life.

Extracurricular Opportunities

Students 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.
