Welcome to Yewlands Academy
On behalf of the Governing Body, I am pleased to confirm that following the retirement of Mr Chris Weston the Trust have appointed Mr Simon Winslow on a temporary basis. Mr Winslow is a highly respected Headteacher with a proven track record in improving student progress, raising aspirations and establishing positive attitudes to learning.
The Academy has high expectations of our students and staff. This leads to high quality teaching and learning and good student progress. Parents and carers are valued partners in our work and are welcome to visit school by appointment.
We offer a broad spectrum of activities – personal and social, sporting, artistic, musical and cultural and within this, the Academy promotes the values of Motivation, Achievement, Resilience and Kindness.
We recognise the different needs of students and work hard with them to develop talents and potential in a spirit of mutual respect. We value the unique contribution of each student to our learning community. Our expectation of every student is to be the best that they can be. We work closely with our Family of Schools and educational partners to ensure that transition from Year 6 to Yewlands Academy and then on to post 16 education is smooth.
We enjoy the commitment and support of our parents and carers and thank them for ensuring their child is in school on time, in full school uniform and with good intentions every day.
Please take a moment to look at our website which provides you with all the latest information and news about life at Yewlands. You may also wish to follow our activities on Twitter. If you require any further details about the school, please do not hesitate to contact us; we will be pleased to meet you and show you around.
