Values and vision
WMG Academy prides itself as being is like no other school, taking a radical approach to education by putting real, business-focussed, practical problems and challenges at the centre of the curriculum. Students are driven to learn by practicality; doing things, making things, designing things and creating things. Teamwork is a standard practice and core to the academic ethos. In this way students will be much better prepared for the challenges they follow in later life, whether they be in companies, in further education or at University.
Working with the University of Warwick and some of the biggest employers in the region means that WMG Academy has shaped its curriculum from the outset to ensure the training of students with a professional ethos and culture that is in high demand in today’s working world. With a longer working day, high academic standards and business-led dress code, the school’s expectations are explicitly clear to all learners from their first day here to their last.
