Meet our headteacher


A very warm welcome to Willenhall E-ACT Academy. 


It is a great honour for me to be able to play a part in the history of Willenhall E-ACT 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.

Our core purpose is centred on all our children, regardless of ability, to achieve to the best of their ability. We have very high expectations of our children and put great emphasis on instilling mutual respect throughout their academic journey and beyond. In return our students enrich the academy with a dynamic range of personalities who each bring skills, talents and experience that enrich the diversity of our community, as an academy we are harnessing this as part of our ambassador programme so each and every child has the opportunity to take a leadership role.

At Willenhall E-ACT Academy, we deliver an enriched curriculum through high-quality teaching where safeguarding is a priority.  We see each child as an individual and firmly believe supporting them in their wellbeing is just as important as supporting them academically to help them reach their full potential.

Our Academy ethos is based round the three trust values, which are: think big, do the right thing and show team spirit and this can be seen on a daily basis in our work with our feeder primaries, the range of personal development opportunities we offer students and the wider work we do as part of our community work.

I hope you decide to become a member of our community. By choosing Willenhall E-ACT Academy, your child will experience a mix of care, support and opportunity to thrive for whatever path they choose to take.

I look forward to working with you all.

Mrs Sarah Murcott

Executive Headteacher of Walsall Secondary Academies
