Welcome to Samuel Ward Academy.

We are a successful school for 11- 18 year olds situated in the Suffolk town of Haverhill, a location that puts us at the heart of many smaller local communities. Our students and staff are caring, honest, hard working with an ambition to achieve and to succeed. This is reflected in our results and academic achievements and mirrored with artistic flair and creativity.

At Samuel Ward we offer outstanding welfare and guidance through a structured house system. A system that will provide inspiration, opportunity and a sense of belonging. Our ethos is to value the success of every individual, their honesty and integrity, celebrate creativity and foster resilience and independence. We expect each person to respect others and the community in which they live. 

And we believe ‘The best way to predict the future is to create it’
