Academic Enrichment & Extension Opportunities


Students at Samuel Whitbread Academy have the opportunity to take part in coaching and support sports days and events. Coaching takes place in lower schools - pupils have the opportunities to support coaching in lower schools for sports days and events ran at SWA by the Redborne sports partnership. In events ran by SWA the pupils have been brilliant in helping support events with coaching and refereeing, and this is a tradition we continue to value.
