As Headteacher of Woolpit Primary Academy, it is a privilege to be part of the new chapter of our school and all it is going to achieve. We have an abundance of strengths and positives to offer and being a caring school with a commitment to offering a safe and secure environment to learn is just one of them.
My priority is to ensure that the changes we make in this new chapter of the school’s history are supported by the whole school community, so that together we can continue to develop Woolpit Primary Academy into the amazing school that it deserves to be for the children we serve.
This website is a small insight into what we offer and will continue to build as we grow. We warmly welcome visits from prospective parents and look forward to showing you around and discussing our offer with you. Please contact the school office to book an appointment and don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
I look forward to meeting you and working together in the future.
