to Shaw Wood Academy

Welcome to our school website. We hope that it provides you with a range of useful information and gives you a real insight into our popular and successful school.


At Shaw Wood, we pride ourselves on being an inclusive, safe, friendly, welcoming school where every child and adult is valued. Our expectations and standards are high, with a focus on inspiring and motivating learning experiences, developing knowledge and skills through our innovative curriculum offer. Alongside academic achievement, we aim to develop children socially, emotionally, morally and culturally, celebrating their unique talents and skills so that everyone is able to achieve their potential in all areas of school life.

Our goal is for every child to leave our school as:

  • Caring, respectful, resilient individuals
  • Young people who are proud of their unique talents
  • Life-long learners who aspire to achieve their best
  • Global citizens confident enough to challenge inequality and unfairness.

We truly value and welcome the support from our parents, families and wider community and our commitment to working in partnership is integral to the success of all our children.

Whilst our website can provide information, the only true to way to really find out about our school, it to experience it first-hand. We would love for you to visit and look forward to welcoming you into our school community.

Thank you for visiting our website!
