Innovative & Future Thinking Academy 

Innovation is central to our approach to education. We pride ourselves on offering a fully blended approach to learning and gaining the right balance between social interaction and use of technology which deepens and extends learning. At WSO, our key objective is to equip students for the 21st Century and enable them to develop a skill set to succeed in an uncertain future. We provide an education that meets our students’ future needs, and not those of the past, and to make their learning experiences both inspiring and relevant. We use technology to move beyond the classroom, develop new e-skills, and promote a range of collaborative technologies all set within the following dynamic facilities:

 

  • Outdoor Learning classroom 
  • 750 seat Auditorium
  • Three large multi-purpose sports halls
  • Two full sized sports fields
  • Media Suites; including Radio Station, Recording Studio, Editing Studios and I.T. Suites
  • Three Library learning facilities
  • External Ampitheatre
  • Indoor and outdoor FS play areas 
  • Performing Arts Suites; including 2 Dance Studios, 2 Drama Studios and Music Technology suites
  • Fitness Suite/Conditioning Gym
  • Cricket Practice Nets
  • Design Technology facilities; including two Food Technology rooms, Design Technology workshop, Textiles, Resistant Material and Electronics
  • Two Student Restaurants
  • Large study area for Post 16, with outdoor balcony and their own Cafe
  • Three Blended Learning Plazas; Mini BLP for our FS to Year 2 students, Midi BLP for our Year 3 – Year 6 students, and a large BLP for our Secondary students
  • Three 25m swimming pools
  • 100m sprint track
  • Art Studios with Pottery Kiln
  • Two Parent Cafes

Through these experiences, our students will become technologically, intellectually and emotionally literate - critical thinkers who can adapt flexibly to the needs and challenges of the future. This also emphasises the competences and skills that we espouse in ensuring that students are helped and supported in finding, selecting, organising, managing, analysing, evaluating and applying knowledge. To support our aims in the use of technology as a central learning tool, we have the following facilities/resources:

  • A wireless communication network that links the entire campus and allows students to use their own hardware (BYOD – Bring Your Own Device)
  • Classrooms equipped with digital projectors and interactive white boards
  • Internet firewall and systems to filter and prevent student access to undesirable material
  • A virtual learning environment (MyLearning) that provides students with a safe and securely monitored learning space, in which they can access and create interactive, online resources to support their learning.
  • The virtual learning environment (VLE) also connects home and the Academy so that learning can happen at a student’s own pace, space and time.
