Welcome to the family update!

our Y6 into 7 Saturday Schools are fast approaching!

A completed registration/medical form must be returned to WOA reception prior to your child's attendance, or they will not be permitted to complete the session.
Saturday school dates are between May 14th and June 25th 2022 from 10am till 12pm.
We have very few spaces left but if you would like to claim a space or for any further queries please contact us on [email protected]
We can’t wait to see all of our students back and ready to learn tomorrow!

The summer term starts at 8.45am so please make sure you are in school, in full uniform, ready to start the term in style!

Over the Easter holiday weekend 13 of our cadets trained alongside 160 other Royal Marines Cadets from Alpha Company Royal Marines Cadets at Caerwent Training Area in Monmouthshire.

After an equipment check the cadet were separated into two groups where 60 uniformed instructors delivered a range of lessons - from Bivvi construction (where they had to sleep), camouflage & concealment, Ration pack cooking, judging distance, section formations, personal hygiene in the field, patrols, hand signals and a sniper stalk.

Feedback so far is they really enjoyed the weekend despite the lack of sleep and are looking forward to summer camp!
