I am delighted to welcome you to Smestow Academy where we provide a broad and balanced academic and vocational curriculum designed to support a focus on personal development. We believe in the importance of working with parents.
We are committed to ‘Building People’ with the skills, knowledge and understanding to become active and successful members of society. Everything we do in school is aimed at promoting a passion for lifelong learning and striving to uncover our students’ talents and interests. Our care and compassion are central to our ‘family’ atmosphere, which has served us well in our response to the current national challenges.
Our values of Respect, Resilience, Honesty, Integrity and Accountability are the cornerstone of how we work. The Academy has a real community spirit where we believe in making a real difference. We are committed to recognising those less fortunate than ourselves and are regularly involved in charity work.
At Smestow we have a proud history of Sport and Physical Education provision and value extra-curricular opportunities, offering music, art, foreign and UK travel experiences as well as leadership opportunities. Last year we won the Wolverhampton Sports Award for the Inclusive school of the year and have The Duke Of Edinburgh Award programme which is well established at the school. Our students have a reputation for supporting local primary sports festivals where they share their enthusiasm and ability with young students across the local area. We are proud to have active participants in the Wolverhampton Youth Forum, providing a voice to young people across Wolverhampton.
We are a part of the newly formed UWMAT 6th Form, a partnership harnessing the best quality of sixth form provision Wolverhampton has to offer with high levels of vocational and academic progress. We guarantee University of Wolverhampton progression routes on satisfactory completion of study which emphasises our commitment to Higher Education. In addition, being sponsored by the University of Wolverhampton Multi Academy Trust brings the opportunity to work with the cities largest Education Provider, for both students and staff.
We are determined to provide an outstanding educational experience for all students. We want the best for our students and the best for our community. Should you wish to come and visit us please contact the Academy to make an appointment, we would like to share our Academy with you, through accompanied tours.
