Character at Washwood Heath Academy

We are proud of our CONFIDENT, RESILIENT and INDEPENDENT students who graduate successfully from Washwood Heath Academy.  There are many aspects of what we do that contribute to the development of these traits in our students.   The image below seeks to capture some of the ways we work together to create well rounded students who are ready to go out into the world and make a success of whatever they choose to do.

In particular, we are working towards developing character through:

Sporting experiences

Volunteering and Membership

World of Work Experiences


Creative Experiences

Our work on character is closely tied in with our Knowledge Rich Curriculum, our Cultural Capital strategy, our Restorative Behaviour strategy and the Washwood Heath Academy Passport.
