A warm welcome to
Achieve exceptional things
Life at our Academy
Opening September 2022
Our new Sixth Form
Welcome to Wixams Academy
I am honoured to be the first Principal of Wixams Academy. Our core purpose is to inspire and challenge all students to achieve exceptional things and to develop those key skills and qualities which will serve them throughout their lives.
We are still a young Academy, having opened in September 2017, but we have already developed a reputation of providing a highly aspirational education in a nurturing environment. From September 2020, we have four year groups: 7, 8, 9 and 10 and we will grow into a full secondary school with our aim of delivering world-class education through outstanding teaching and innovative approaches to the curriculum. We provide a broad curriculum including an exceptional range of extra-curricular clubs and enrichment courses and activities to foster interest and develop well-rounded learners.
As a father of four children, ensuring that students are supported to feel happy, secure and able to thrive is essential to me. Therefore, delivering the highest quality student experience is at the heart of everything we do; from providing inspirational teaching and learning, to personalised student support.
I very much look forward to welcoming you to the Academy and working with you to achieve the very best possible outcomes for your children.
