I am proud to be the Headteacher of Wingfield Academy and would like to welcome you to our school. We pride
ourselves on the unparelled levels of care, guidance and support we provide for our young people and this was
recognised as an outstanding feature at our most recent Ofsted in 2017.
Having spent half my career at Wingfield Academy I have watched with excitement as it’s grown from strength to
strength. My immovable belief that Wingfield Academy could be one of the best schools in Rotherham has
been realised in recent years following four years of outstanding GCSE results. Student numbers in lower
school have reached a record high and more families from outside of our catchment area are choosing.
Wingfield as their preferred secondary school. We are now significantly over subscribed. This is testament to the
hard work of my staff and the exemplary behaviour and attitude of our young people.
Wingfield Academy is a very special place. My staff are child-centred, progress-focused and everything we
do allows our young people to grow and thrive. Our relentless pursuit of a child’s best is at the heart of every
decision we make and we believe that going the extra mile is necessary in achieving that goal.
Our students are the hardest working children in Rotherham and our core values of respect, responsibility
and resilience are characteristics we nurture from Year 7.The high expectations for student progress and conduct
are integral to day to day life at Wingfield. We recognise the enormous contributions and support that you as
parents can offer us and we will embrace the opportunity to work in true partnership to support your child’s
learning. Together we will aspire to provide a secure, safe and caring learning environment at the Academy and at
home, where every child matters, achieves their potential and where no child is left behind.
I look forward to working with you and your child to ensure they can grow and thrive in a school that provides
an exceptional educational experience.
