Woodham Academy rated ‘good’

“Achievement for All” is our stated aim. We are proud that boys and girls of all abilities make very good progress at Woodham Academy. This is because our highly experienced teachers challenge all students to do their best, all of the time. Lessons are exciting, often using the latest digital media. Teachers at Woodham Academy enjoy working with young people and are committed to doing their very best for them.

Whilst the teaching at Woodham Academy is rapidly gaining a national reputation for innovation, our values are unashamedly old-fashioned. We believe in good behaviour and good manners. Lessons are quiet and orderly so that teachers can teach and students can learn. Our ethos is of unconditional mutual respect.

I hope that our website will answer any questions you have. What it cannot do is to give you a real sense of the warm, friendly and caring atmosphere at Woodham Academy. The only way to experience this is to come and visit us. We look forward to welcoming you.

GCSE Exam Results 2019

 

It is always a pleasure to attend GCSE results day at Woodham Academy. Standing with so many proud parents and staff as students open their envelopes really is a privilege of my role as Headteacher. This year, the hard work and dedication of the entire school community has produced the best ever results for Woodham Academy. 48% of our students gained a grade 5 in both English and maths, increasing to 68% for grade 4. The high quality of teaching in these areas was confirmed with the cohort also achieving 14 illustrious grade 9s (the top 2 or 3 percent of students nationally achieve this). This figure has us placed very much towards the top of the county performance tables and reflects the high standards we have now come to expect at Woodham Academy. Successes were clear in every area of the school. From a personal point of view, this is the trend of the results that I am the proudest of, with consistency in every department.
