EMPOWERING YOUNG PEOPLE TO BE THE VERY BEST THAT THEY CAN BE WITH HIGH EXPECTATIONS OF WHAT THEY CAN ACHIEVE BOTH PERSONALLY AND ACADEMICALLY
At Walsall Academy, we pride ourselves on being a different choice of school and seek to empower our young people to be the very best that they can be.
We are a welcoming and heavily over subscribed school, with high expectations of what our students can achieve both personally and academically. Ofsted recently noted that Walsall Academy students ‘respect the individual differences of their peers and treat each other fairly’. They also observed that students ‘feel safe and are well cared for’.
Our school is a happy place to be, where students and staff have mutual respect, collaborate effectively and have a passion for teaching and learning.
We offer an ambitious curriculum for all to achieve their academic potential and are immensely proud to have Oxbridge, Arkwright and RANK Foundation scholars amongst our inclusive and aspirational community. Many of our ex-alumni relish the opportunity to return to us to inspire and enthuse younger learners.
We work closely with local employers and businesses to offer a unique careers advice and work experience programme, with 92% of our Year 13 leavers last year, in employment or further training, compared with 79% nationally and 77% locally.
Our curriculum is further enhanced by the vast array of opportunities we offer for learning outside of the classroom. Experiences such as expeditions, residential trips and theatre visits, as well as sporting competitions, performing arts and environmental actions, contribute greatly to personal development and help students to build their resilience and character. We strongly believe that embracing new experiences raises students’ aspirations and motivates them to achieve their best.
A recent Oxford undergraduate commented: “To me, Walsall Academy means a community of wonderful staff and students that has enabled me to reach my academic potential, pursue my passions and interests and develop myself as a person. This has allowed me to achieve more than I ever thought possible and has prepared me for the future.”
