As Trust Local Governors of Woodfield Academy we are dedicated to helping everyone achieve their full potential, in a caring and nurturing environment. The Trust Local Governors are passionate and proud of the schools achievements and with Headteacher, we are ready to support the school on the next stage of its journey.

The Trust Local Governing Body is responsible and accountable for the decisions made within the school and the shaping of its future. We want to reiterate that we are committed to remaining a middle school whilst working closely with our pyramid partners and not be detracted from our primary focus of educating our children.
