Welcome to Will Adams Academy

I am very proud to be the Head of School where all staff are passionate about ensuring that all students have the opportunity to be the best person that they can possibly be. In fact, many ex-students have said that without the school they would not be in the positive place in their lives that they are now.

We offer alternative provision with a firm focus on supporting, engaging and raising the aspirations of every student.  All students work towards achieving meaningful qualifications that will lead to relevant next steps and a post 16 pathway.  Running alongside the academic/vocational qualifications, students work towards the PIXL Alternative Edge qualification and the whole school is dedicated to the rights respecting ethos of UNICEF. I am excited to say that this year we will be working towards our Gold award.

We offer a truly inclusive school, where the students’ needs come first.  We work hard to offer wrap around support to families, encouraging them to have the confidence to make better-informed choices and work together with agencies and us, to make a real difference in their lives.  Due to the vulnerabilities of our students and their families, safeguarding expectations and practices are at the highest level and are regularly reviewed to maintain best practice.

If you would like to learn more about us please do not hesitate to contact me.
