Edgar Wood Academy: a key focus is to build students’ confidence and strength of character to aspire to achieve their very best
Next years’ students at Edgar Wood Academy will be the first to experience the new state-of-the-art school building at Bowlee, with facilities designed to allow every student to flourish academically, culturally and artistically.
Before they start in year 7, children are supported with a strong transition programme to ready them for high school.
During their time at Edgar Wood Academy, a key focus is to build students’ confidence and strength of character to aspire to achieve their very best. By achieving this, Edgar Wood Academy students have no limit to what they can achieve with hard work and resilience.
In its first year, the school is based in a temporary site on the grounds of Hopwood Hall College, Middleton campus, whilst the new school at Bowlee is completed.
The state-of-the-art school is opening in September 2022 and features modern specialist teaching resources including science labs, computing rooms and art studios; dedicated performing arts facilities, with practice music rooms and a drama theatre; a well-stocked library and resource centre; a fully resourced technology suite, with food technology, product design and construction facilities, and a well-equipped sports hall with a fitness suite.
Edgar Wood Academy is proud of the highly skilled teachers whose enthusiasm and passion for their specialist subjects is infectious. The commitment to deliver a broad and balanced curriculum is at the heart of what we do, challenging students to surpass their expectations.
Headteacher Marcin Kojder said: “As headteacher of Edgar Wood Academy, I am very proud to have the opportunity to work with my colleagues to support every student to develop both personally and academically.
“We will 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.”
“Starting a new school, whilst exciting, can also be very daunting. We have excellent links with all the primary schools in the local community and have strong working relationships with them to ensure your child will feel supported and confident about starting at Edgar Wood Academy.”
“I hope our passion and commitment to ensuring our students’ potential through high-quality teaching, in a safe and caring environment, shines through.”
Edgar Wood Academy recognises that education stretches beyond the classroom, providing an extensive enrichment programme to help its pupils embrace rich new opportunities and challenges, all the while creating memorable experiences.
Students are expected to take part in a wide range of sporting, creative, academic and cultural opportunities, gaining accreditation through the Children’s University.
The closing date for all applications is Monday 1 November 2021 in the year prior to starting secondary school.
National offer day is Tuesday 1 March 2022.
The school has an admission number of 180 for entry in year 7.
