  • At STWA the teachers are incredibly helpful and are willing to help anyone who needs it.

    Ian, Year 11

  • The teachers care a lot about our success which I think is really good and that they always give us a challenge to push us which shows they think we’re capable of a lot. I enjoy learning different topics in subjects every term because there is a massive variety.

    Daisy, Year 11

  • English is my favourite subject because I enjoy reading. I like how teachers are always there when you need help and try their best to keep you on task.

    Alyssa, Year 11

  • I enjoy learning at school because teachers just make it fun. My favourite subject is French because I'm good at it and try my best. Everyone is always so kind to you and will show you around if you're new to the school.

    Leon, Year 7

  • We get to learn all sorts of different things that are really essential for our future jobs and dreams. If you are worrying about starting secondary school just remember - don't worry and if you are worried you have your friends, family, new friends and new teachers to talk to.
