Our Academy curriculum vision is to “provide EVERY student the opportunity to acquire academic excellence and those skills, qualities and experiences that develop well-rounded, successful and happy members of modern society”.

At Wixams we want the potential of all of our students to be unleashed and we passionately oppose the idea of predestined outcomes based on stigma, background and prior performance.

Coined by 1970s French sociologist Pierre Bourdieu, he identified three sources of cultural capital – objective, embodied and institutionalised.

Institutionalised: qualifications, education credentials;
Embodied: language, mannerisms, preferences;
Objective: cultural goods, books, works of art.

How do we enhance the ‘Cultural Capital’ of our students?
