Weston Favell Academy

Our Academy

Welcome from the Principal


Welcome to Weston Favell Academy, part of the Greenwood Academies Trust (GAT).  I am proud to be 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 motto, ‘Be Inspired’, is demonstrated throughout our curriculum.  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 get the very best out of our students and go from strength to strength in the coming years.

I believe in Weston Favell Academy; this is a great place to work and learn.  We have exceptional facilities and a bright, inspiring environment.  If you are interested in joining us, I urge you to visit.  I am confident you will like what you see and I look forward to welcoming you.
