Welcome to William Lovell
Headteacher - Mr. S. Hutton
I am delighted to be the Headteacher for William Lovell Church of England Academy; a community where all have a collective pursuit of academic and moral perfection.
Our vision is to be the best version of ourselves in an environment designed to be rewarding, stimulating, and challenging so that students can actualise their potential. Our strong community creates a place of opportunity which allows its students to flourish, find expression, build strength of character, and make positive decisions when faced with adversity. This is guided and discovered through a rich pastoral system which makes a real difference to students lives. Our alumni progress onto prestigious pathways that lead students access university, apprenticeships, and impressive chosen careers, contributing significantly to the world.
..a place of opportunity which allows its students to flourish, find expression, build strength of character, and make positive decisions when faced with adversity.
I am dedicated to building opportunities for all students to not only achieve the highest academic standards but also ensure that their unique personality, talents, and interests are nurtured and developed to the full. There is a synergy between developing a well-rounded individual and a strong academic record; students maximise their potential when nurtured in a positive and enriching learning environment.
We already now have in place a strong and creative senior leadership team, with new roles and responsibilities. In September 2021 we put in place a new middle leadership team, which comprises of our Curriculum Cluster Leads and our year based Aspirational Leads.
Changes to, and investment in, the physical building and the environment have started and September 2021 also saw us recruit some fantastic new members of teaching and support staff. All this, combined with William Lovell's distinctive christian ethos and strong sense of community, mean that the future is very exciting for students at the school.
As a Church of England school, our underpinning values, which are deep-rooted in the Christian story, are the driving force of our academy
Our broad and balanced curriculum is complemented by an extensive range of enrichment activities such as creative arts, sports, music, student leadership and academic master classes, amongst many others.
This enables every student to discover new passions whilst exploring and enhancing existing ones, an offer which is extended to our community of primary schools. Students arrive at William Lovell secondary-ready having benefited from our Summer School and extensive primary engagement provision.
We are incredibly proud of the achievements our students make within and beyond life at the academy
As a Church of England school, our underpinning values, which are deep-rooted in the Christian story, are the driving force of our academy. They resonate through everything we do, creating an inclusive culture where all faiths are valued, everybody is shown and receives Respect, Truth is modelled and encouraged, Generosity is given without expectation to receive, Forgiveness is practised, and Justice is demonstrated.
We recognise the enormity of effort from parents, carers, staff and the students as advocates for each other that allows our students to grow and flourish. We are incredibly proud of the achievements our students make within and beyond life at the academy and we look forward to hearing their successes at any stage.
It is an exciting time to be part of this academy and I will strive to ensure we serve our community well and students are able to cherish their school experience, furnished with the foundations to secure lifelong success and reach their potential.
We believe in working in close partnership with our local community and parents. We thank you for the support that our families have given us over the difficulties of recent months. We are looking forward to working with you to provide our children with the care, support and educational provision that they need and deserve.
