“Welcome to our Washwood Heath Family” 

is what we say to every Year 7 student on their first day at Washwood Heath Academy and we mean it.
Education transforms lives and we prepare every student to succeed and equip them with the confidence and skills to accomplish this.  Our creative and innovation curriculum ensures students master the basics:  reading, writing, communicating and mathematics.

We are proud of our excellent reputation both locally, nationally and internationally through our academic success and developing your child through our partnerships with Mosaic, Envision, Duke of Edinburgh Award, Arts Council and cutting edge Teaching and Learning initiatives. Our in-house systems provide a family ethos challenging students to be responsible for one another and our community.

My personal aim is to ensure that we are a majestic school for every child:  developing pride, confidence and resilience in themselves and each other.  I believe in academic excellence.  “Respect, Responsibility, Excellence” is our motto and underpins our values.

Heather McLachlan
Head of Academy
