We are ‘business like, business led’
From your first visit to the academy, you will be treated like the young engineer that you aspire to be. All students are treated like young adults and are expected to dress in business wear and behave in a mature manner – just like a real workplace.
We are industry led and our facilities are designed to be like those that can be found in a real workplace. As a WMG Academy student, you will have access to the academy’s state-of-the-art engineering hall with over £1 million of specialist equipment, Computer-Aided Design suite and a range of manufacturing, design and digital technologies.
We are partnered with real employer partners, like Jaguar Land Rover, Bosch, National Grid and Rolls-Royce. As a WMG Academy student, you will work with real businesses throughout your time at the academy and will be exposed to opportunities of work placements, business visits and project work set by companies. You will get to visit our employer partners and find out what working life is all about.
As well as academic studies, we are passionate about making sure students leave WMG Academy with the employability skills they need. As a WMG Academy student, you will be able to take part in a range of ‘enrichment’ activities including car building, martial arts, public speaking, business skills, Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and fitness.
During your time here, you will learn the skills to make a success of yourself in the world of work and all our students are expected to secure apprenticeships, university places or work on leaving, with tailored help from experienced tutors and our careers staff.
We embrace modern technology and see it as a useful tool to enable research, learning and communication. Unlike other schools, as a WMG Academy student, you will be given your very own personal Chromebook and you will be permitted to use your phones at certain times during the day. Find out more here.
