West Lakes Academy Prospectus

We have high expectations of all our students and our highly skilled and enthusiastic staff will encourage your child to have strong ambitions and work hard to achieve these. The academy has a three year key stage 3 programme. At key stage 4 students will have the opportunity to study for the E-Baccalaureate. After key stage 4 many of our students move into our Sixth Form which is bigger, better and more successful than ever. Our programme of study is personalised to meet students’ individual needs and we have designed our curriculum to make your child’s move from primary to secondary education an easy one. Whilst making sure we nurture students’ talents, we also make learning interesting and enjoyable through six 55 minute lessons a day. Our key stage 3 programme aims to raise the ambitions of all our students, develop their knowledge, skills and understanding and help students to have confidence in their abilities. We are committed to providing a challenging programme of study and opportunities, both inside and outside of the classroom. In achieving all this, our aim is to give our young people the skills and qualifications they need to succeed in the 21st century. 07
