WWTW Schools Programme

We are really keen to engage with young people and to educate them on the important charity work we are doing with our wounded servicemen and women.

Please see below a range of materials and teaching resources for both Primary and Secondary age pupils.

Our Educational aims are:

  • To introduce the charity and educate students about the work and goals of WWTW
  • To explore the consequences and aftermath of war for servicemen and women
  • To develop student’s empathy with others
  • To dispel some of the stereotypes surrounding disability and gender
  • To explore human motivation, endurance and determination
  • To be inspired by the strength of others
  • To explore the meaning of courage

Current Teaching Resources

Our current resources include Primary and Secondary Assemblies to download on The South Pole Allied Challenge. These resources are also suitable for use in P.S.H.E. and Citizenship lessons with a range of age groups as they cover SEAL targets of equality, disability, diversity and overcoming obstacles in life.


Three Legged Challenge

Can you work together to overcome the ‘disability’ of being three-legged whilst at the same time having fun, raising money for Walking With The Wounded and telling everyone about the important work we do with our injured servicemen and women? Then click here!

Andy McNab Story-Writing Challenge

We were knocked out by the quantity and quality of the entries for our Andy McNab writing competition. We would like to extend our congratulations to every student that submitted a story and to the teachers who worked so hard to enable them to produce stories of such a high level of imagination, creativity and technique. With over 800 entries our panel of judges found it very challenging to shortlist 20 stories which were then passed to Andy McNab to judge without identifying the school or the student.
