Our Academy

Welcome from the Principal

I am immensely proud to be Principal of the Weston Favell Academy. Our ethos is simple: we believe that every child can succeed and it is our responsibility to provide the opportunities to ensure that every child does succeed. Our students, their learning, achievement, personal development and well-being are our priority.

Everything we do is focussed on ensuring that each individual is educated and supported to succeed in the world today. We believe that every child is talented; it is our role to nurture those talents so that every child achieves their full potential. The curriculum we offer is extensive offering a range of academic and vocational courses which enable students to build on existing strengths and develop new knowledge. We have many extra-curricular learning opportunities for students to enhance their skills and experience beyond the academic curriculum.

The atmosphere around the academy is focussed on learning. We have high expectations of everyone which are built on traditional values and positive relationships. We expect all students to take pride in wearing the full academy uniform, being respectful towards each other, attending and behaving well at all times and above all working hard and making the best of the extensive opportunities available to them.

We believe that the quality of student support and guidance is fundamental to success. We provide high quality personal support, advice and guidance which ensures that that individual interventions are timely and relevant according to need. All the support we offer is focussed on encouraging students to succeed and helping them to prepare for their future beyond secondary education.

Working together is pivotal to our success. With the support of the Greenwood Dale Foundation Trust, we will seek to create effective partnerships between parents, the community and the Academy. Together we will ensure that Weston Favell becomes an outstanding organisation in everything it does.

I look forward to welcoming you to the Weston Favell Academy in the future.
