WELCOME FROM THE PRINCIPAL
It is with an enormous sense of pride that we welcome you to Stationers’ Crown Woods Academy. We are a values-driven Academy with an unshakeable belief in human potential and are proud of all our students. We have the highest expectations of them in terms of academic achievement, personal development, attitude, behaviour, attendance and appearance. Staff are dedicated and committed to students being stretched, challenged and supported in all their learning experiences so that they can reach their full potential and learn essential life skills to help them succeed in an ever-changing world.
Our curriculum offer is broad, innovative and inclusive with a rich variety of subjects that allow students to aspire, strive and thrive. Lessons, delivered in world-class learning facilities, are stimulating and challenging, meeting the needs of all our students. Our enrichment and extension opportunities support the development of our students as well-rounded, life-long learners.
It is an immense privilege to be part of a highly skilled, professional, team of staff, all of whom are focussed on students’ academic progress, character development, happiness and well-being. Young people face many choices and challenges in their teenage years and our Small School model enables us to provide outstanding care and pastoral support. Staff are a reassuring and constant presence in our young people’s lives and help them discover who they are and what they want to be.
As a Stationers’ school and part of the Leigh Academies Trust, our students have access to an incredible range of opportunities in industry, commerce and education. The commitment of the Governors and Trust members is outstanding. They work tirelessly to provide advice, financial support, work experience, mentoring, apprenticeships and enrichment opportunities. ‘Stationers’ students’ are highly regarded by further education institutions and employers.
We know that young people achieve their best in a supportive and caring environment and a strong home/school relationship plays an essential part in helping our students reach their full potential. We look forward to welcoming you as members of our Academy family.
