Weston Favell Academy

Virtual Open Evening - 8th October 2020


Welcome from Ms Leventhal, Principal

Dear Prospective Parents

I am delighted that you are considering Weston Favell Academy for your child.  We would have loved to have had our normal Open Evening so that you could visit us and meet our wonderful staff and students.

However due to the current restrictions we are unable to do this as normal and so have created a number of videos for you to watch and also a virtual tour.

On Thursday 8th October we are able to offer a limited number of appointments where you can meet with the Senior Leadership Team who can walk you around the school and answer any questions you may have.

These groups will be family bubbles only and all social distancing regulations must be adhered to.

If you would like to book a tour, please click here and complete the booking form.

I look forward to meeting every one of you soon.






Welcome from Mrs Edwards, Director of Transition & Head of Year 7

My role, together with our Year 7 Pastoral Leader, Mrs Parrett, and experienced team of tutors, is to ensure the smooth transition of your child into the Academy, making sure they feel content, confident, settled and reassured.

I personally strive to make sure that every child blossoms during their first year at Weston Favell Academy (WFA) and I will do my utmost to make the experience as positive and memorable as possible.  

Supportive Form Tutors will endeavour to make your child feel safe as they establish new friendship groups across the year group.  They will explain all about the extensive range of extra-curricular clubs, activities and events available over the course of the year.  As a pastoral team, we will also nurture your child and be on hand to resolve any issues or problems that may arise during this very important time in their life.

A Day in the Life of a Year 7





We know that high levels of attendance are a vital component for successful learning and we pride ourselves on striving to achieve the highest levels of attendance at Weston Favell Academy.  

Please read the academy's guidance on attendance.



Where possible, we hope your child will walk, ride a bike or take public transport.  If parent's preferred choice is to bring their child by car, the roads near the academy can become very busy and congested at the start and end of the school day so please drive carefully, park sensibly (and with respect to our neighbours) and be thoughtful to others.  The Academy does not operate school transport, students need to use public buses if necessary.
