Thousands of students are now enjoying one of North Somerset’s biggest and best school auditoriums and excellent sports halls after massive funding boost.
The Worle Community School Academy now has retractable seating for over 300 students. This sees WCSA having one of the biggest stages of any venue in Weston-super-Mare outside of The Weston Playhouse.
The high-achieving, caring Academy hosts some fantastic drama performances throughout the year, which are attended by local primary school children and members of our community. The new state-of-the-art auditorium is a perfect setting to expand its music, drama and the Arts.
WCSA has also had massive improvements to the sports hall, changing rooms and gymnasium, with hundreds of thousands of pounds spent on flooring, lighting and state-of-the-art decoration.
The funding boost from the School Allocation Fund means the Academy becomes one of the largest school campuses in the region.
Principal Jacqui Scott said “The auditorium and gymnasium look really superb. They are both very welcome additions to what is an excellent and substantial educational campus.”
The academy has a wonderful caring and high achieving ethos, excellent extracurricular provision including the Jill Dando News Centre and the groundbreaking eco-club.
The school motto is ‘We Challenge and Support to Achieve’.
Neville Coles, CEO of The Priory Learning Trust said: “We are delighted to provide even more improvements to the new look Worle School, now WCSA.
“With a significant investment in the sports hall and in the new auditorium at around £400K we are again improving the community facilities and those for the WCSA kids and parents.
“WCSA is looking fantastic and we hope local parents will see the new facilities in the online films that will be shared in the coming weeks by the school.
“Miss Scott, as Principal, and her team are doing a great job after many years of underfunding at the school. It’s now back to its best.
“We challenge and we support to achieve at WCSA. Despite the current pandemic the school is now thriving and we’d warmly welcome anyone wishing to hear more about plans and the next stages for a school which has been at the heart of Weston-super-Mare education provision for many years.”
