As Principal, I warmly welcome you to Astrea Academy Woodfields. I am proud to lead the academy on a rapid journey to achieve excellence for the children and young people we serve and to see them flourish in our care.

As part of the Astrea Academy Trust we do not subscribe to the typical notion of ‘schooling’ where everything is driven by results. Astrea students will achieve academically to the very highest levels, but education is so much more than just attainment.

We believe in an education that ‘inspires beyond measure’ and to deliver this, we focus on encouraging and nurturing resilience, empathy, aspiration, contribution and happiness in all of our students. We will deliver a broad and balanced curriculum based on knowledge, skills and experiences which will enrich students’ lives and provide them with opportunities to broaden their horizons and ‘reach for the stars’.

Our mission is to ensure our students leave Astrea Academy Woodfields with not only the academic qualifications to compete in a global society, but also with the necessary dispositions and character to embrace and be successful in a world full of hopes and challenges. We want students to understand the vast possibilities that lay ahead in their life journey and instil the confidence and belief that they can reach their ambitions.

I make no apologies for having relentlessly high expectations of students and staff and for driving excellence in all that we do. If you share our vision for excellence, then I welcome you on this exciting journey with us.

Joanne Cater
Principal
