Welcome to Weatherfield Academy

A special message from the Head Teacher
 
For those of you who do not know about Weatherfield Academy, we are a special school with 152 students. The Academy has an excellent learning environment looked after almost entirely by the students themselves.
 
Our Academy is for young people who find it difficult to maintain their progress in mainstream educational settings. The Academy is set up in the same way as a mainstream school. Many visitors state that they feel
they are in a mainstream setting when they tour the classes and facilities. This is something we strive to maintain.
 
All young people who attend Weatherfield Academy have an SEN Education Healthcare Plan (EHCP). The small class groups at our Academy linked to specialist teaching and support give the young person an opportunity to work with peers and build a set of life skills from which to approach their future.
 
Young people aged 7 to 19 years currently attend Weatherfield Academy.  The classes are divided into age appropriate groups with different social areas and a curriculum tailored for younger and older students.
 
Teaching and Learning is innovative and the core lessons take place during the morning to include English, Maths and Computing. Life and social skills are integrally taught across the Academy, these include personal safety, protective behaviour, manners and relationships.
 
During the afternoon learning sessions, a vibrant Creative Curriculum runs across the Primary and Key Stage 3 age range. The Key Stage 4 and 5 students select from a range of qualifications [at least 7]. Accreditation and examination results are excellent and pupils strive to reach the highest levels possible.
 
This is reflected by pupils and staff across all age ranges as our main ethos at Weatherfield Academy is for all to ‘Become the Best Person They Can Be’.
