Samuel Whitbread Academy

The Society



Welcome to The Society at Samuel Whitbread Academy. The Society continues to provide student members with the opportunity to further their aspirations and work towards achieving their goals. Whether this is academic achievement and applications to universities, or those wishing to apply for degree apprenticeships. The Society offers a huge range of opportunities that aim to focus study skills and enable our students to talk about their subjects in a more coherent and complex manner. It’s our intention to increase the chance of our students entering the top academic institutions in the UK and across the world at both universities and apprenticeships.

The SWA Society is now part of the Bedfordshire Raising Aspirations Project. We hope to offer Society members access to a range of resources and events. The diploma programme in year 9 is the starting point for new students to the school alongside entry into the HPQ qualification. This leads into year 10 and 11 with subject tutorials that are delivered by a range of year 12 Sixth Form students. Lectures are also available and are delivered by staff to widen knowledge and opportunities to ask the right questions.

The SWA Society has also developed a student leadership structure that leads on all events to support all members across the school. Please make sure you contact your year group leaders and see what is going on. There is something happening for members of all year groups.

For more information about The Society, please look at our prospectus here.

The Society Student Leadership team has put together a newsletter to feature and celebrate their various initiatives within and beyond the school community. You can access the first edition of the Society Newsletter by clicking here.
