Proud to be an FMAT Academy

Our Academy

Principal's Welcome

Smith’s Wood Academy is a special place to learn and work. Students that choose to study with us and colleagues that choose to work with us tell us what an incredible school this is.  At Smith’s Wood we do things the Smith’s Wood Way. This means that we strive for excellence in all that we do; we are dedicated and ambitious for ourselves and each other. We truly believe that there is dignity in hard work and effort and we believe in taking a traditional approach – manners, courtesy and respect are integral to our work. We believe in being open and transparent and in working with absolute integrity. I am proud to say that this is a school where staff and students support each other and take collective responsibility. Our aim is to prepare each and every student to succeed in the next stages of their career, education and training and to have the skills and competencies to do this. Smith’s Wood’s traditional curriculum and traditional approach to teaching and learning underpins our ethos and our drive to mastering the basics; reading, writing,
communicating and mathematics. As Principal, I am incredibly proud of our Academy and its community. Equally proud are our staff and students. I am relentless in my drive and ambition to improve the outcomes for all who choose to join us on our journey. I hope that you like what you read and that you choose to take the first steps in joining the Smith’s Wood Team.
