Inspirational education with people that care. We make a difference every day.
I am extremely proud to be the Principal of Springwest Academy, a vibrant, mixed comprehensive school serving the local community of Feltham. At Springwest, we care wholeheartedly about the development of all of our students in order to enable them to achieve their academic potential and to thrive in all aspects of life. We pride ourselves on providing an ambitious, rigorous, knowledge-rich curriculum and introduce students to challenging and thought provoking content from the start of Year 7. In addition to knowledge, we see understanding and memory to be at the core of learning and therefore students are given opportunities for extended discussions and writing within all of their subjects as well as regular recall quizzes.
At Springwest we have developed PREP sessions which allow students to start the day in a purposeful manner by either reading or completing silent study which supports them to keep on top of the demands of school life. Our Friday finish of 13.40 is a refreshing way to start the weekend and we encourage all staff to have time for themselves and their families.
We are an inclusive school and have a strong pastoral support system, including a designated member of the Senior Leadership Team, Achievement Coordinator and Pastoral Mentor for each year group. Students with SEND or EAL are well supported by specialist teachers within mainstream lessons and smaller numeracy and literacy groups. In addition, we have two Local Authority resourced Centres which provide provision for students with physical disabilities and Autism.
We are fortunate to have beautiful outdoor spaces which include both raised and sunken gardens as well as playing fields, two astro pitches and a MUGA. Our outstanding facilities are regularly used by the local community at evenings and weekends.
Our students behave in a polite, kind and responsible manner which is achieved by our consistent and fair use of ‘Springwest Expects’. The Academy has a real sense of togetherness and our teachers are proud to teach great lessons every period, every day
