Proud to be an FMAT Academy

Our Academy

Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Smith’s Wood Academy. I hope you find our website full of useful information about an ambitious and exciting Academy.

I am very proud to be the new Principal of Smith’s Wood and look forward to working with the staff, students, parents and Academy Associates in creating a vibrant, aspirational and continuously improving school.  Being Principal of a community Academy is something that I hold very dear to my beliefs and values, as such my expectations are that we will all work together to ensure your children get the best education possible.

As a parent I completely understand the importance of having a good local Academy with strong classroom learning and a nurturing environment. Alongside this are the highest of expectations for your children, unwavering standards of behaviour and etiquette that depict the culture and ethos of the Academy.

Within the Academy community we expect our students and parents to fully work with our staff and Academy Associates in setting and maintaining high standards and expectations. We will aim to ensure each and every child reaches their individual potential and is well equipped for the next stage of their life beyond our Academy.

As an experienced Principal but new to Smith’s Wood Academy I will be relentless in my drive to ensure Smith’s Wood Academy continues to improve, ambitious for every child to be happy, cared for and successful and that the community can be proud of their local Academy.

Thank you for visiting the website, and please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

I look forward to welcoming you and your family to Smith’s Wood Academy.
