Welcome to Samuel Ward Academy

Samuel Ward Academy is a kind, warm, welcoming school where we ensure that students have the curriculum, support and ambition they need to become the best they can be.

Our ethos is rooted in our commitment to inclusivity. We are committed to valuing every individual, to developing their honesty and integrity, to feeding their creativity, and to fostering their resilience and independence. We want our students to be confident, kind and caring. Above all, we want our students to be successful learners.

Our investment in our staff’s professional development and well-being ensures that they are highly skilled, committed and determined to achieve the best outcomes they can for their classes. Our pastoral and care systems are excellent, ensuring that we can respond quickly and flexible to each student’s needs.

Our expectations of students are high, but so are our expectations of ourselves. As a whole school, we are smart, polite and considerate. Our structured personal development programme and the many opportunities for participation provided through the house system and our student democracy structures, encourage our students to develop he qualities we believe are essential for a successful future; ambition, bravery and compassion.

And we live by day according to our belief that the best way to predict the future is to create it.

As part of the Unity Schools Partnership we work closely with colleagues in other schools to share best practice and develop innovative approaches. We are especially excited and proud to be working much more closely with Westfield Primary Academy, our closest neighbour and one of our largest partner primary feeder schools. By working together, we will be able to ensure smoother transition, greater access to resources, more opportunities for leadership development, greater sharing of expertise and a common approach to supporting all of our students to achieve. Our committment is to provide excellent education, excellent care and excellent opportunities from early years to A-Level.
