Near 1m cash boost for brilliant school gives it one of the biggest campuses around

An Academy is to receive a cash injection of nearly one million pounds to provide state-of-the art facilities, upgrading their campus.

The brilliant Worle Community School Academy in North Somerset will have retractable seating for over 300 students by September. 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 of Britain’s best drama performances throughout the year attended by local primary school pupils, and the new state-of-the-art auditorium will be a perfect setting to expand its music, drama and the Arts.

WCSA will also have 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 will mean the academy becomes one of the largest school campuses in the region.

Principal Jacqui Scott said: “We are absolutely thrilled with this funding which will further enhance our academy to compete with the best of them."

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 ‘We Challenge, We Support, We Achieve’.
