Past College Competitions


Thank you all so much for your fantastic entries for the latest College Competition. It was lovely to see the many ways that students and staff of WCA are going out of their way during these challenging times to make a positive impact on others. We had examples of you supporting your families at home, by cooking, cleaning and helping siblings with school work right through to examples of you helping your local community, through donating to foodbanks, showing support for the NHS by placing signs in your windows and shopping for neighbours and relatives.

It truly is wonderful to see the care and consideration for others demonstrated by WCA students and staff. Well done once again!

Details of our final competition will be released soon! Watch this space…

During the current school closure, there is time to take up some of the many opportunities available online and/or challenge yourself to learn a new skill - on your own, with friends or with your family. Every challenge or opportunity you take up will earn your College rewards points so make sure you let your College Leader know via the monthly challenges set on ClassCharts by submitting a picture, video or short write-up of what you have done - enjoy!

WCA College Roundup - December 2019

Students at WCA have made a fantastic start to the new academic year, getting involved in a number of College activities based around our new College Values initiative. This term, students in Warwick, Godiva, Leofric and Mercia have focussed on Respect and Tolerance. The new focus for next term will be revealed in the College celebration assemblies in the last week of term.

As part of our PSHE day on Wednesday 16th October students engaged in activities promoting gender equality with our Smashing Stereotypes themed College afternoon. Students took part in:

·         Boys Netball

·         Girls Rugby

·         BBC Young Reporter Competition

·         Smashing Stereotypes research activities

·         Smashing Stereotypes Quiz

Students across the colleges produced some fantastic work, with some being entered for the national Smashing Stereotypes and BBC Young Reporters competitions.



We recently launched a national poetry competition to our students. The theme of this competition is “Our Country” and focusses on what our country means to us. Students are encouraged to submit their entries to College Leaders by Friday 13th December, or by emailing them into

There is still plenty of time to get involved in College activities and bring those points totals up. Remember to keep up to date with all the events on your College Noticeboard at the bottom of Four Storey!
