Welcome to the website of Wardle Academy. We hope you find everything that you are looking for and more. We are a very successful Academy with a distinctive character and many strengths. We are extremely proud of what we have to offer.
At Wardle Academy we have very high expectations in everything that we do and we believe that personal development and academic success are complimentary. We believe that life in our Academy should be a safe and happy experience where young people are nurtured and developed. Throughout their education we want our students to make outstanding academic progress, to develop character, resilience and understanding, to learn the skills that they need to help them to succeed in the workplace and to make a contribution. We want our young people to be a success in school and beyond. There are no glass ceilings on what anyone can achieve at Wardle Academy.
While there is much you can find out about us through our website, a website can only offer you an introduction to life at our Academy. If you would like to find out more please do not hesitate to contact us and I would be delighted to welcome you to experience for yourself our offer, and to meet our greatest assets, our students and our staff.
