Additional Information

Responsibility for the admission of students rests with the Governing Body. All applications for places at the Academy will be considered in accordance with the Admissions Code and with the academy-specific criteria set out below.

Springwest Academy will admit 180 full time students into Year 7 in September 2021. The admission of pupils with a Statement of Special Educational Needs or an Education Health Care Plan is dealt with by a completely separate procedure. This procedure is integral to the making and maintaining of statements by the pupil’s home council. Details of this separate procedure are set out in Special Educational Needs Code of Practice.

 

In Food Technology we learn how to be healthy and in PSHE we learn about how to have good mental health. We are encouraged to be reflective and responsible for ourselves and those around us.

Joe, Year 8

My favourite thing about Springwest is the diversity, I love that each student or teacher is different in their own way and that the school encourages students to be their own person and to be confident in who they are, no matter their background, orientation or gender. | am proud to know that we are one of the schools that ensure that all students feel welcome.

Student Feedback

The thing I love most about Springwest is the collaboration between the students. Students will aid one another not just in education but in everyday life

Ben, Year 11

Teachers teach high quality lessons with their valuable experiences. Students’ questions are always clarified patiently until we understand the topic.

Jaikishan, Year 11

I used to be a student at Springwest and now I work here. I love helping the students and building a rapport with our families. It is rewarding seeing students understand something they didn't.

Thank you so much for such an amazing experience with First Give. I am really grateful to Ms Swandle for making it so fun for everyone. This is definitely a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. - Ameera Year 9

I’m now in Year 11 and I am the way I am today because of my teachers. In Year 7, I had no confidence and would shy away from everyone. However, members of staff have helped me to overcome this.
