From The Headteacher
I am delighted to welcome you to Woodlands Academy.
Our school has a focus on raising the aspirations of every student that comes through our doors and ensuring they achieve nothing but the best. We achieve this through our traditional values of hard work, perseverance and respect. We believe this balance of future aspiration and traditional values prepare our students for their next step on their learning journey.
One of the things that stands out for me at Woodlands Academy is our House System. I have never seen pastoral care delivered to the same level as we have at Woodlands Academy. Each house has a physical building, where they can meet with their peers before school, have house assemblies and have an opportunity to spend time with the House staff; something you rarely find in other schools. Our House staff spend time getting to know their students and they all become part of a large family whilst they are at school and this is something special to us at Woodlands.
As well as our fantastic pastoral care, we also offer an exciting curriculum staffed by teachers who not only have a passion for their subject, but are also skilled in teaching boys in order for them to achieve.
Our school also provides excellent after-school experiences for the students, offering a variety of extra-curricular clubs and activities, as well as a wide range of trips, this adds to the rich culture of a well-rounded education.
As you explore the school website I hope you will gain a flavour of what it means to be part of the Woodlands Academy community. If you are thinking that this school might be the ideal environment for your son, I would strongly recommend you to visit us, as only then will you begin to appreciate what a fantastic school we are! I am also confident that what I have said regarding our current students will also be evident.
If you do choose to join our successful and vibrant school, I look forward to working in partnership with you in the near future.
