In addition there are numerous opportunities throughout the year for boys to participate in day trips (for example museum and gallery visits) or evening trips (for example to music concerts or theatre visits). The variety on offer will depend on the year group and subjects studied.
The boys are working as part of Akenkan, a unique literacy organisation founded by three UK and Ghanaian teachers, including Mrs Stead. It was established so that pupils in the UK learn all about a different culture while pupils in Ghana gain much needed reading material - and are persuaded of the joys of reading for pleasure! Akenkan is about education working two ways.
A team of older boys will be in a position to hand deliver these special books to Ghanaian children in the summer of 2019, when Wilson's embarks on its inaugural Akenkan expedition. Boys will spend the first week teaching and reading with the children. The second week they will experience some of the country's rich culture including the slave forts and rainforest.
