New to Wood Green Academy

Welcome to Wood Green Academy

Dear Year 6 Students,


My name is Mr. Perry. I hope this message finds you well and that you are filled with excitement as you prepare to embark on a new chapter of your academic journey. As your new Head of Year, I am thrilled to extend a warm welcome to each and every one of you as you transition into Year 7.


Entering Year 7 is an exciting milestone in your educational journey. It marks the beginning of new friendships, new experiences, and new opportunities for growth. While it’s natural to feel a mix of emotions – excitement, nervousness, curiosity – please know that you are not alone and all of you will be feeling a little different from each other about the transition. Our dedicated team of Form Tutors and our amazing Student Support Manager (Mr. Richards) are here to support you every step of the way.


In Year 7, you’ll encounter new subjects, new challenges, and new ways of learning. Embrace these opportunities with an open mind and a willingness to explore. Wood Green Academy is about far more than just what takes place in the classroom. We have an extensive extracurricular program covering clubs in Sports, Music, Drama, Maths, Art, and many more. You will also be given the opportunity to take part in residentials abroad to Germany, France, and places closer to home. Remember, it’s okay to make mistakes along the way, as each hurdle you overcome will only make you stronger and more resilient.


I encourage you to approach Year 7 with a sense of enthusiasm and curiosity. Ask questions and seek out new interests. This is your time to shine, and we can’t wait to see all that you will accomplish.


Best wishes,


Mr. Perry
