Welcome to Woodham Academy. I’m proud to be the headteacher of a school you can trust. Woodham’s journey over the last few years has seen us evolve into a very different place. The entire school community has worked very hard to create a calm, well-behaved, hard-working and nurturing environment, where all students can be successful. We thorougly believe in ‘Achievement for all’.

As a parent myself, I know that choosing a school for your child is very important. Will they be happy? Will they be safe? Will they make good progress? Will they have the chance to take part in exciting activities? I’m clear that this school can confidently answer ‘yes’ to all of these.

At Woodham we truly believe that the best form of pastoral care is to ensure that all students leave with a good set of examinations results, allowing them to progress to the college or training provider of their choice. We challenge students to do their best, work hard and achieve well. High expectations underpin everything that we do. We believe in excellent behaviour, good manners, high standards of appearance, punctuality and attendance. This creates an ethos of mutual respect and cooperation where children feel safe and thrive.

Extra-curricular activities are the heartbeat of Woodham Academy. Opportunities in sport, art, leadership, drama and music are available for all students. Woodham Sports Academy, Performing Arts Academy and Leadership Academy provide a wide range of enrichment activities, which children value and enjoy.

In choosing Woodham Academy, you are trusting us to look after, educate and help prepare your children for their lives ahead. We are looking forward to making this happen.
