Sixth Form Induction

This week Year 11 pupils returned to the academy for their Sixth Form Induction. Pupils had some lesson tasters ready for September, had a warm welcome from the  6th form coordinator Mr Rogers and had a careers workshop with Miss Rehman. 

This is an exciting time for our new cohort of Year 12 as they prepare for their next steps – we are all looking forward to welcoming them back in September!

Mr Hill, Mr Rogers and Miss Rehman were all very impressed by students’ attitudes to the activities and participation in the group tasks.

We are Social!

We are happy to launch the brand-new Wednesfield Academy website. We hope this makes communication between school, parents and pupils easier and more effective.  Our website is updated on a weekly basis so please use this to stay up to date with everything going on around school. Our school letters will be uploaded onto the website so you can stay informed along with regular news and event details.

Along with the new website launch, we have also joined some new social media platforms so we can really shout about the successes of everyday life at Wednesfield Academy, please take a few moments to follow us on the following platforms.


Sixth Form Volunteering

This week has seen a number of our Sixth Form volunteering hours pass the 50 hour mark.

Our Sixth Form students commit to two hours per week in Year 12 and one hour per week in Year 13 of volunteering around the academy.

This includes supporting lessons in Years 7, 8 and 9, mentoring students from all Year Groups, supporting our Pastoral Team and Library activities.

Not only is this a great way of gaining experience, but also allows them to be strong role models for our younger students.


Refereeing Success

K. Lewis in Year 12 has been helping one of our local primary schools, Perry Hall, by refereeing their after school football matches. He has been asked to support them over the next four weeks because they were so impressed with the way he interacted with the younger students! Well done, the PE department are very proud of you!


District Tribunal Judge Visit

Our Year 13 Criminology students had the pleasure of welcoming District Tribunal Judge, Jane Beale and HHJ Katherine Tucker into their lesson on Monday. These two passionate and successful women provided an insight into their careers and supported in the students’ understanding of the Justice System in England and Wales. They even allowed a few students to try on a very impressive gown and wig! We send many thanks to our visitors for taking time out of their extremely busy schedules to speak with us and we now cannot wait to visit the courts in person!


Girls Football Champions

Our girls football team have been enjoying success, coming third overall in a recent indoor tournament. They also had three wins out of three games in the West Midlands League last week. Lionesses in the making, we think!
