On Sunday 21st June, pupils in Years 7-13 had a wonderful opportunity to observe a solar eclipse at school. A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon moves between the Sun and the Earth, casting a shadow on a portion of the Earth. This impressive celestial event was greatly enjoyed by all involved and fosters interest in science among the pupils.
In June, our Year 11 and Pre-Ax pupils took part in a very successful Sixth Form Induction Week. Pupils participated in a full calendar of activities and lessons that allow them to gain insight into Sixth Form life, as well as preparing them for the step-up from IGCSE to A Levels in September.
Sport forms an integral and important part of School life. All pupils take part in sport every day with the focus being on team sports.
Staff at the School are highly qualified and experienced graduates of major universities, the majority coming from the UK.
Pupils at WAIS are offered an exceptionally wide range of activities and experiences beyond the classroom.
