Meet our Headteacher
Executive Headteachers welcome
It is a great honour for me to be able to play a part in the history of Willenhall Academy, many of you will know me from my work at West Walsall, an academy where I remain the proud Headteacher. I pride myself in bringing with me a relentless belief that ‘everyone has the right to be the best version of themselves’ and that we all have the responsibility to make this happen – this is a responsibility I take incredibly seriously in all of the Academies I work with.
I firmly believe that the Academy vision:
“We aspire to inspire students to be lifelong learners in a safe and
supportive environment, delivering an education that cultivates excellence
in every student – no barriers, no boundaries.”
Is the right one for our students and together we will make Willenhall the Academy that our community can be proud of.
I look forward to working with you all.
Mrs Sarah Murcott
Executive Headteacher of Walsall Secondary Academies
It is a privilege and honour to be the Headteacher of Willenhall E-Act Academy, a vibrant centre of learning. It is exciting to lead such a fantastic school on its continued journey to provide the very best education, support and life opportunities to the students and wider community of Willenhall. It is my belief that it is the values we hold as a school and the contributions we can make, that will drive and inspire our children towards excellence.
To nourish happy and resilient young people, our Academy is underpinned by the strongest foundations of discipline, personal pride and sense of community. Embracing positive personal attributes such as respect and tolerance, we strive to instil a professional integrity that will enhance the culture and ethos of every student.
Together with my staff team, we demonstrate our commitment to the holistic development of our children by insisting on high standards
and aspirations that ensures every child fulfils their potential and leaves the school as a confident, well-rounded individual.
We are passionate educators who believe that all young people should be inspired to develop their talents and skills; be challenged to be the best they can be, but above all,
develop a thirst for learning that will stay with them throughout their lives.
Our vision is to inspire and promote success both academically and creatively, allowing our students to experience a plethora of opportunities whilst placing their well-being at the centre of all that we do. Our sharp focus on a child-centred curriculum, combined with a rich range of learning and creative educational experiences that utilises their talents and energies, our children will be prepared for bright futures where they can contribute positively to the global community.
I am sure that you will enjoy learning more about our Academy as you explore our website. That said, there really is no substitute for a visit and we hope to have the opportunity to welcome you and your family to Willenhall E-ACT Academy, so that you may experience the incredible warmth of this most remarkable and successful community.
