Welcome to Barnfield West Academy

Our prospectus will provide you with a brief insight into some of the outstanding work we are doing in teaching and learning in order to provide an excellent education for students who attend the Academy. At Barnfield West Academy we never forget that parents entrust us with one of the most important and rewarding jobs in the world, the education of their children. For us, that means unlocking the potential within every child in ways that ultimately make them happy, confident and competent young adults.


We believe in three core expectations: high achievement for all, happy and successful students and a blend of traditional values within a modern context. As a result, our students are articulate, hard-working and well-rounded individuals who achieve considerable success by taking on challenges and working independently.


Standards are very important to us and we are extremely proud of the many achievements of students and staff at the Academy.


Our academic results consistently place us among the top state schools in the country. Our curriculum experience is very rich and broad reflecting the many needs of our young students. Our most recent OFSTED visit judged the Academy as “Outstanding”.

Our supportive approach enables everyone to develop the skills and knowledge required to be responsible and considerate individuals suited to the demands of our ever-changing multicultural society. There is extensive monitoring of students’ progress and regular contact with parents. We place a high emphasis on positive behaviour which ensures the Academy is a happy and safe place within which to learn. “Students make exceptional progress from their starting points to reach standards, by the end of Year 11, that are significantly above average.” OFSTED

Our Academy boasts some of the best and most innovative educational facilities in the country. The building was designed in partnership with students, parents, carers, local residents and our stakeholders to ensure it can be used as a community resource for the Lewsey area for many years to come.

As an academy within the Barnfield Federation we hold a pivotal position in delivering a world-class educational experience for students from the local community. We are committed to excellence; we embrace change and no matter what the starting point, we are committed to providing the best for every child.
