Extra-Curricular Opportunities

Extra-Curricular Opportunities

One of the key features we want West Bromwich Collegiate Academy to be known for is opportunity.

We aim to make sure all students are involved in some level of extra-curricular activity and feel we have a superb programme to showcase the talents of students. Though the below are our current plans, we also want to hear from students about any additional opportunities they would like to see.
