At BCA we believe that leadership opportunities should be developed at all levels and therefore we provide many opportunities for students to develop leadership skills both in and out of curriculum time.
An active STUDENT PARLIAMENT meet regularly to discuss ways in which the academy could be improved. They seek the views of students and staff and meet with members of the senior leadership team to present their views and solutions on how to further improve the academy. This year we are introducing formal accreditation through the AQA awards scheme.
SPORTS LEADERSHIP opportunities allow students to lead primary aged pupils in a number of school games competitions both on and off site. Training is provided so that they are able to organise, plan and administer competitions in conjunction with the Warrington School Sports Partnership.
CHARITY LEADERS are very active in the local community and beyond. They have raised money for local and international charities and assisted those who are less fortunate than themselves, to date they have raised money for the local RSPCA, The Royal British Legion, Cancer research, homeless community of Warrington Sands project, Knowlsley Safari park. Since the charity leaders have been active they have raise over £4000. Formal accreditation is certificated through the AQA awards scheme.
LANGUAGE LEADERS are passionate about languages and developing their linguistic skills and are our ambassadors who support our MFL Department in promoting languages both within BCA and with our local primary schools. Regular after schools sessions are held to plan language events and create materials for primary schools that are used to assist the delivery of French and Spanish language sessions to primary school pupils.
Our E-SAFETY LEADERS have been trained by Cheshire Police. Students took part in lots of team building active learning activities that focused on new means of digital communication and all the ways to keep themselves safe. They help to plan assemblies and update others on how to continue staying safe online.
