"A good school that is improving strongly. Outcomes for students are good because their achievement and all aspects of their personal development are good. Students, staff, parents and carers are most positive about the school. The following comments from parents and carers exemplify the views of many, ‘The staff show a genuine care and concern.’ and ‘I have nothing but praise in the highest degree for this school.’
Ofsted, September 2011
Woodham Academy opened on 1st September 2012. Formerly Woodham Community Technology College, the school has built on its technology heritage to develop state-of-the-art digital media. Woodham Academy is the home of Woodham Sports Academy which offer high-quality coaching to students in a range of sports including Football, Dance, Cricket, Softball, Basketball, American Football, Gymnastics, Table Tennis and Swimming.
At Woodham, we believe that to learn well, students need to behave well. We have a clear behaviour policy based on Seven Simple Rules which must be followed at all times. This creates a calm, orderly environment throughout the school. We also believe that good relationships and good manners are very important. Our expectation is that everyone at Woodham treats each other with unconditional respect.
At the heart of everything we do at Woodham is a commitment to high-quality teaching. All of our teachers are well-qualified subject specialists who seek to inspire students to strive for academic excellence. Building on our Technology College heritage, we continue to invest in the latest digital media. Homework is often set through our Virtual Learning Environment which allows students to study anytime, anywhere.
