As a follow up to the Aberdyfi trip for students who wish to further their experience of the outdoors. This trip, based in the Lake District, designed and lead by the Outward Bound Trust, allows Year 8 students to further develop the skills gained and challenge themselves to put themselves further. We do receive a bursary towards the cost from the Outward Bound Trust but we require a parental contribution in the range of £200 - £300.
Students from Years 11 and 12 have the opportunity to go to Krakow, Poland for a 4-day residential visit, organised by the Religious Education subject team.
Students experience the long history of Jewish culture in the city of Krakow, its destruction by the Nazis and have the opportunity to meet a Holocaust survivor during a full day's guided tour of Auschwitz. This is an excellent trip, educational, thought-provoking and poignant.
The Academy offers financial assistance in two ways:
The Academy operates a savings club where parents can make rgular payments. The money is held in a separate bank account from the Academy's normal account. Parents can track the money they have paid in and instruct us how they wish that money to be used. If you wish to use this facility a bank mandate is available on the website.
the Academy has an endowment fund set up by our sponsors. The aim of the trust is to assist students who, because of financial reasons, would not be able to access all aspects of the wider curriculum. Students wishing to make an application should, in the first instance, talk to their school leader.
