Welcome to Watling Academy

A very warm welcome to Watling Academy and thank you for your interest in our Academy.

Our School Values

The Trust’s mission – to provide the highest standards of Education, Care and Opportunity for all its students is underpinned by the ‘Watling Way’ exemplifying our core values of


Respect for ourselves and others, accepting the value and existence of alternative opinions and viewpoints whilst understanding the parameters in which a successful school community has to operate.


All members of the community will be aware of the consequences of their actions and words and understand that the choices they make can have a long-term impact on others and the environment.


Fundamentally linked to respect and responsibility. For us this means that students will be kind not just in what they do and think about others but also about themselves.

“I am so very impressed with the school ethics and all of the teachers. The school is very much doing what you said it would on the open evening all that time ago.”

“I would like to say a big thank you as my child has really enjoyed the school and the environment that you have created. From the first day he said that he liked the school and had a smile on his face when he went to school and when he returned home. Your teachers have lit a fire in him.”

“My child has been excelling in most subjects and really enjoys school and the environment he is in; all the teachers are really supportive, and he really likes his tutor.”

“Like most kids, when I have asked him what have you done today, the majority of the time he can’t remember, this week he has told me in fine detail from the moment he got to school to the end of the day what he has been doing and he is telling me with so much happiness and excitement.”

“I was very impressed with my child’s Head of Year’s caring and professional approach and wanted to contact you to pass on my compliments about him. I’m delighted to say that this is perfectly in line with what I have come to expect from staff at Watling Academy.”
