Wold Academy

At Wold Academy we pride ourselves on creating a safe and fun environment for our children to learn, grow and develop lasting friendships.


Enrichment is an important part of daily life at Wold Academy.

Enrichment is a key driver for both Wold Academy and our academy sponsor – David Ross Education Trust. We provide a broad range of enrichment opportunities - focussed around sports, the Arts and PSHE - as we firmly believe that these opportunities will benefits our pupils, both academically and by broadening their life experiences.

As a David Ross Education Trust academy, we believe that enrichment can help to raise academic standards, enhance performance and teach life skills that will equip our pupils for an ever-changing world.

Primary enrichment gives students the chance to participate in activities that supplement learning and enable them to broaden their skills and experiences, identify talent and enhance it.

Activities include performing arts, including dance, drama and music. There is also a focus on sport, outward bound and developing life skills.
