West Walsall E-ACT Academy is committed to providing the very best education for all students through hard work, support and challenge.
West Walsall E-ACT Academy is an inclusive secondary school in the West Midlands that celebrates the diversity of the community that it serves. With high expectations of every student, the Academy focuses on instilling a culture of high ambition, underpinned by hard work and a refusal to accept second best.
The Academy values every young person as an individual, regardless of gender, faith, ethnicity, and demands the best from each and every student every day of the school year.
The same is expected of the teaching staff at West Walsall E-ACT Academy, reflected in the Academy’s commitment to high quality training and coaching for staff to ensure that they continue to develop and teach to the best of their ability. Equal importance is attached to the pastoral support for students, with each year group led by a Progress Leader who is responsible for ensuring that each young person makes the progress expected of them across all aspects of school life.
The curriculum delivered is engaging and relevant and aims to develop young people to be independent and innovative thinkers as well as resilient team-players. The post-16 offer is rich, with over 20 A-level subjects offered, and 90% of students go on to undergraduate study at university.
The Academy is home to the Innovation Centre, a bespoke facility that combines delivery of formal learning together with opportunities to engage with business. As well as providing a hub for study space and post-16 learning, the Centre provides meeting rooms and training facilities for the wider local community in Walsall.
