Dear Parent / Guardian
I am very excited to be the first Principal of Great Western Academy; my ambition is to lead a thriving forward thinking learning environment which is inspiring from its first day. Using fantastic facilities we will see students progress and flourish, gaining excellent results and developing into influential citizens of the future.
The Academy will encourage high aspirations and will expect the very highest standards of both staff and students at all times. Students will enjoy learning and staff will enjoy teaching them and will inspire them to make the very most of their talents. GWA will become a centre of excellence and a key asset to the local community; we will welcome parents and businesses to support our learning and provide facilities to use by the community.
The Academy's approach is based on the belief that pupils should become enterprising people ready to embark on new adventures full of boldness and initiative. Adults of tomorrow need to be independent thinkers and lifelong learners since their careers may include many different jobs - some of which have not yet been created. Our curriculum and extra-curricular enrichment opportunities will be the foundation of this.
I am looking forward to the first day of term in September 2018 when our new Year 7 and Year 12 students will arrive full of anticipation and excitement. I hope that your child will be joining us on that day.
Graham Davis - Principal
