  • Duke of Edinburgh Award

    Published 25/01/22

    Here at Wath Academy we pride ourselves on creating rounded individuals who thrive in all circumstances. We strongly believe that the students can develop a unique set of skills and characteristics as embodied by our Key Drivers and Curriculum Intent. 

    We are happy to offer Year 9 - 13 students a chance to participate in The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award. The DofE programme founded in the United Kingdom in 1956 by HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh is the world's leading youth achievement award, giving millions of 14 to 25-year-olds the opportunity to be the very best they can be. 

    The programme has been successful in enhancing school learning and achievement, securing personal and social development and encouraging good citizenship. 

    The Award is recognised internationally and is well regarded by Higher Education establishments and employers. IT offers the students the chance to be rewarded for activities that they already undertake, as well giving them the opportunity to strike out with peers in the fantastic countryside of the Peak District and further afield. They truly will get a chance to make memories that last a lifetime! Most of all it will be fun!

    Come and join us, the world awaits!

  • 2nd Covid-19 Vaccinations

    Published 18/01/22

    The Rotherham Immunisation Team will be in School on Mon 31/1 and Tues 1/2 to give our students, aged 12-15, their 2nd Covid-19 Vaccinations.

    Pupils requiring their 2nd Covid Vaccinations must be aged between 12-15 years old and have already received their 1st dose. There must also be a 12 week gap after testing positive for covid-19 to have their vaccine as well as a 12 week gap since their first dose.

    Any pupils who are now 12 years old and require their first dose or who are 16 years old needing their 2nd dose, would need to book in for their Vaccinations at The National Vaccination Centres, through 119, however, this may change in the future.

    Parents/carers wishing their 12-15 year old children (who meet the criteria) to receive the 2nd dose of the Covid-19 vaccine will need to complete a consent form which can be found on the following link:
