Welcome to Wednesfield Academy

Mr Phillips | Headteacher

It is an honour to introduce myself as Headteacher of Wednesfield Academy.  At Wednesfield Academy we are committed to ensuring all pupils meet their full potential. 

Wednesfield Academy believes school should be a thriving and highly successful learning community for all pupils and a place of high academic achievement and exemplary pupil support. To enable this to happen, there must be a partnership between pupils, parents and staff at the school.

Our house system and school ethos are there to create a sense of belonging in the school community and allowing pupils to enjoy their learning. We want pupils to leave Wednesfield Academy with the skills and experiences to take the next step in their lives.

We believe a close relationship with our linked primaries is crucial to allow for a smooth transition as pupils move from the primary school into secondary. We also want our pupils to be proud members of the community they are from and treat others with respect and kindness.

I hope you have chosen Wednesfield Academy for our traditional values and determination for your child to achieve.  It is a great pleasure to welcome your child on their journey with us and to work with you.
