Message from the Principal
I write to you at the end of a challenging but very positive first full term. I’d like to start by thanking you for your support, understanding and patience during recent months. We have endeavoured to do everything we can to keep our students and staff safe whilst delivering the education our community deserves.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my first term at Wath Academy. The warm welcome I have received from staff, students, governors, parents and the community has made my first few months much easier. Prior to starting in September, many people told me there is something special about Wath Academy and the community it serves; I now fully understand what they meant. The history of the school is something which makes us unique: the house system, the Torch and our sporting heritage, among many other things, continue to keep us rooted to our beginnings as well as positively contributing to the future of our students. These long- standing traditions along with our community are what makes the academy so special.
The pride and investment felt around the academy heightens the importance of our vision ‘delivering exceptional learning experiences that enable all young people to thrive in a competitive world and lead successful and fulfilling lives’. We remain passionate and undeterred in the pursuit of becoming a beacon of educational excellence. There is a positive momentum gathering at the academy despite the challenges that Covid-19 has thrown our way, which is testament to the incredible amount of hard work, no excuses and never give up attitudes of staff and students. We look forward to continuing this after the Christmas holiday.
I hope you all have a safe and restful break, and we look forward to welcoming our students back on January 4th, 2021.
On behalf of everybody at Wath Academy, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
Mr L Ransome
