Open Evening – Monday 18th September 2017 – 6pm to 8pm
Thank you for taking the time to find out what Washington Academy has to offer to your son or daughter from next September onwards.
Washington Academy offers maximum opportunities for young people to develop academically and socially in an environment that is stimulating, caring and supportive. We set high standards, which instil values that support our students in developing into confident and responsible young adults.
The educational provision here has a well-deserved reputation for academic excellence. For many years our GCSE results have placed us amongst the top schools in Sunderland. There is a natural progression onto Sixth Form where the courses accessed by our students include both the traditional A Level and vocational programmes. Our academic outcomes here enable students to follow their chosen path, with those who subsequently apply to university securing their chosen place.
The pastoral organisation of Washington Academy ensures a sharp focus on the well-being and academic progress of the students. High standards of behaviour based on respect for each other and the academy environment are paramount and the House system helps to foster a real spirit of community and co-operation.
In addition, an excellent range of extra-curricular activities, trips and leadership opportunities are available for our students making Washington Academy a vibrant community in which all are encouraged to develop their talents to the full.
Every student matters to us; we are committed to developing well-rounded individuals with a thirst for
life-long learning. It is our ambition that every child will achieve their best and look back on their time at Washington Academy with fond memories and a real sense of achievement.
Choosing the right secondary school for your son or daughter can be challenging for both you and your child. To support you in making a well informed choice, we warmly welcome you to Washington Academy and encourage you to visit the academy either on our Open Evening or through a conducted tour during a normal academy day.
I look forward very much to meeting and chatting with you. If you have any worries or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me.
Please contact the school by telephone or at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any further questions.
