I am the Principal of Woods Bank Academy, in Darlaston, Walsall; may I take this opportunity to welcome you.  

Our Academy partner is the Elliot Foundation and we are federated with two other local schools, Kings Rise Academy in Birmingham and Croft Academy in Walsall.  Together we are committed to working with children, families and the local community to provide an enriched curriculum which prepares our children for their future.

At Woods Bank Academy, we have a nurturing team of teaching and support staff who ensure that the children in our care come first. All of the staff, parents and children are working hard to make our school a great place to be, where pupils are safe, happy and inspired to achieve their very best.

Our logo and three values capture this perfectly.

Belong​ - our school is a happy, safe and welcoming place where children, teachers, parents and the community work together.

Learn​ - our school is an inspiring, creative and ambitious place, where we work hard, have high expectations of ourselves and always do our best.

Grow​ - our school is a kind, nurturing and respectful place, where children flourish as individuals and grow in confidence, independence, resilience and trust.

Thank you for visiting our website and I hope that you find all of the information you are looking for.
