HOLISTIC APPROACH DEVELOPS THE “WHOLE” CHILD TO BE THE BEST VERSION OF THEMSELVES AND SUCCESSFUL INDIVIDUALS THAT CONTRIBUTE TO THE COMMUNITY
The Khalsa Academy Wolverhampton is a Sikh ethos school that welcomes students from diverse cultures,
religions and socio-economic backgrounds.
Khalsa Academy Wolverhampton’s ethos is based upon the three principles of Sikhi which we have translated into universal values. These are behaviours which staff expect students to live by as well as demonstrating these themselves.
A spokesman said: “We are an inclusive Sikh ethos school where academic excellence, personalised pathways and personal development, provide students with the knowledge and transferable skills to benefit society.”
The school launched its own RAF squadron unit in September 2020 as Khalsa Cadets. We also work with external partners; BINTI and Hemraj Goyal Foundation to deliver bespoke personal development workshops. It is also a CAS (Computing At Schools) Community as well as the NCCE Satellite school for the West Midlands Computing HUB, specialising in subject knowledge enhancement, Computer Science and Science teacher training. In addition, we successfully run the Duke of Edinburgh qualifications.
The sixth form provision Khalsa Sixth (KVI) was launched in September 2020. Many of our Year 13s have applied to red brick universities and have secured offers.
Staff take an holistic approach that develops the “whole” child to be the very best version of themselves. The Khalsa Academy Wolverhampton (TKAW) has developed an innovatory and aspirational curriculum vision. The overall priorities are to provide an outstanding curriculum:
Which delivers excellence and raises aspiration in both progress and attainment for all
Gives opportunities for pupils to explore their spirituality and draw upon universal Sikh values to become reflective, caring and tolerant young people;
Nurtures intellectual curiosity, creativity, independence, resilience and healthy lifestyles.
Our GCSE results last summer produced a positive Progress 8 (P8) score of +0.7, above national averages (based on 2019 league tables).
Having had an Ofsted Inspection in June 2023, The Khalsa Academy Wolverhampton remains a “Good” School, on its journey to becoming an exceptional school that cares, nurtures and develops pupils to become future leaders.
