Weston Favell Academy

Our Academy

Welcome from the Acting Principal

Welcome to Weston Favell Academy, part of the Greenwood Academies Trust (GAT).  I am proud to be the Acting Principal of this vibrant and inclusive school, serving the needs of our 1300 students and the local community. Weston Favell Academy is an improving school and our growing Sixth Form is sending ever increasing numbers of students onto prestigious universities and high quality apprenticeships as our results improve.  

It is our goal to equip young people with the qualifications, skills and characteristics that will help them to achieve their aspirations.  Our core values of Kindness, Respect and Excellence are evident in all we do and reinforced through our curriculum and opportunities.  In addition to high quality teaching, our students can experience a broad range of extracurricular activities, trips and opportunities to help them develop into well rounded, confident adults.  All students are encouraged to develop the key attributes of leadership, communication, resilience, organisation and initiative as part of our comprehensive pastoral programme.

We expect the highest standards of behaviour and effort at Weston Favell Academy. Boundaries are clear and success is celebrated.  By working together, we can enable our students to excel in all they do and become valuable members of the wider community when they leave us.
