Smith’s Wood Academy is a large academy with just over 900 students from Year 7 to Year 11. Located in the north of Solihull, the academy serves students who live in the immediate locality.

Our vision is that every child within the Trust, regardless of their background, will attend an Academy that offers an outstanding quality of education which means to us:

» Every child is recognised as an individual and has access to first-class pastoral care because we want them to be happy.

 » Every child benefits from a wide range of enriching opportunities because we place great emphasis on their personal development. 

» Every child benefits from dedicated leaders, teachers and staff who a relentless in their ambition to improve the quality of teaching in our academies because we know excellent teaching is key to transforming the futures of our students

Smith’s Wood is currently in a transitional state and there is a collective spirit that is apparent as the Academy embarks on the next phase of continued growth and school improvement.

Smith’s Wood converted to an academy on the 1st April 2017, working in partnership with the Fairfax Multi-Academy Trust (FMAT) 

The five core values of the FMAT are central to all that we do:

Excellence – We strive for the highest quality to ensure excellent outcomes

Dedication – We believe there is dignity in hard work and effort

Ambition – We want the very best for our students

Integrity – We believe in openness and transparency

Tradition – We believe in old fashioned manners, courtesy and respect

Our aim is to prepare each and every student to succeed in the next stages of their career, education and training and to have the skills and competencies to do this. Smith’s Wood’s traditional curriculum and traditional approach to teaching and learning underpins our ethos and our drive to mastering the basics; reading, writing, communicating and mathematics.

We are incredibly proud of our Academy and its community and we sincerely hope that you decide to join the team!

At Smith’s Wood Academy we are committed to the highest standards of presentation, behaviour and achievement. A calm, purposeful environment is the key to successful learning and achievement.

Traditional values are encouraged so that students model respectful and courteous behaviour at all times. We want our students to be confident, responsible citizens who have an understanding of the world around them; we encourage them to make a positive contribution to the school and to their local communities to prepare them to excel in modern Britain. Why should a child's life chances be determined by their background? Demographics do not determine destiny.

Academic achievement is obviously vital so the students have the best chance of achieving their ambitions. The link with Fairfax School in Sutton Coldfield benefits all our students; in fact, any Year 11 student who achieves the required grades will gain entry into the Fairfax Sixth Form.

We look forward to receiving your application to join our family.
