Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to Edgar Wood Academy, a school committed to working with the Middleton and Heywood communities. Helping our students realise their potential lies at the heart of everything we do.

At Edgar Wood Academy, we work together to support every student to develop, both personally and academically. We ensure that our students have the knowledge and skills to improve the communities that they live in, to enrich the society that they are part of and to make a positive contribution. As part of our Edgar Wood Promise, we have a curriculum which aims to secure outstanding progress, develop students' powerful knowledge and cultural capital, as well as their aspirations to be the best versions of themselves.

Our values have been developed through a partnership amongst staff, students, parents and carers. We show resilience, empathy and responsibility in our everyday actions and in everything we do at the Academy. We have worked with local businesses to ensure our students have the key skills that employers look for, and these are planned into our curriculum as part of our Edgar Wood Strengths programme.

In September 2022, students at Edgar Wood Academy were the first to experience our new building, with its state-of-the-art facilities, designed to allow all students to flourish academically, culturally and artistically.

Our passion and commitment to ensuring our students' potential through high-quality teaching, in a safe and caring environment is key to the success of each and every student.
