Meet our Headteacher
Welcome to E-ACT West Walsall Academy!
I am delighted to be the Headteacher of this wonderfully diverse academy. At E-ACT West Walsall Academy we pride ourselves on ensuring that every student ‘strives for excellence’. We want to develop our students into good, kind, creative, and ambitious young people, not only through providing a quality academic provision but also seeking out opportunities for our students to excel and develop their cultural capital and pursue their interests.
Our academy values encapsulate the ethos and culture that we promote in our academy. Our students are encouraged to ‘Do the right thing’ through supporting each other, show kindness towards one another and to promote integrity. Our students ‘Show team spirit’ through celebrating our diversity, taking on leadership roles within the academy and participating in regular inter-form competitions. Our value of ‘Think Big’ reminds us of the importance of being ambitious and enterprising to really achieve the very best that we possibly can, and we believe that everyone can achieve!
Our final value of ‘Be Proud’ ensures that our students are always reminded of the community we serve, the academy they attend and strive every day to ensure that both staff and students are proud to be members our E-ACT family. This permeates through pride in our uniform, pride in our work and pride in our community.
As the Headteacher, I have a passionate belief that every student, no matter who they are or where they are from, deserves the very best education for them to follow their aspirations and goals. The staff at E-ACT West Walsall Academy are incredible! They have a genuine care about our students and the families we serve and go above and beyond to ensure that every student receives the very best they can.
Safeguarding our students is of utmost importance to me. It is important that as an academy we develop the best practices in order to effectively support our students, so they feel both physically and emotionally safe at all times.
If you would like a tour of the academy or to come and see what we do, feel free to get in touch.
