Welcome to Westwood Academy

Westwood Academy is a primary school for children that, from September 2016, welcomes pupils aged from 2 to 11.  We aim to provide an education where the individual child defines every activity we do. We hope that our website provides a sense of our school values, and the aspirations we have for the pupils in our care.  Please explore to learn more about our school or contact us to arrange a visit – we love to welcome visitors.

Run Mr Archer!

Mr Archer dragged himself around the 26.2 mile Brighton marathon course in the Easter holidays, on the hottest day of the year…  The heat and cramp for 8 miles slowed him down from miles 16-24, but he gave the leaders a real run for their money, coming in a narrow three and a half hours behind them in 5:32:12.

Genuine thanks to everyone who sponsored him!  So far, £592.20 has been raised for projects at Westwood which is truly appreciated.  If you would like to sponsor him still, you can do so at:



The South Essex Academy Trust has been asking parents about proposals to change the way in which non-pupil days are used, and also about school hours.  Our surveys are now closed and Directors are considering the proposals and the survey results with other evidence and we will let you know the outcome of the decision as soon as it is made.
