Welcome to Wood Green Academy
My name is Mr Brown.
I am very happy to be your Year Leader and I’m very much looking forward to getting to know you over the coming months.
Some of you will undoubtedly be feeling a little bit anxious about coming to ‘big school’, try not to be, but if you are it’s ok, it is perfectly normal for you to feel this way.
Some of you will probably be worried about getting lost, don’t be. Yes, we have a lot of buildings and remembering what subject is taught where will take a bit of time but there will always be a friendly face on hand to ask for directions should you need them!
You will soon become a part of the Wood Green Family I encourage you to become familiar with the ‘Wood Green Way’ which, in a nutshell, is to use good manners, show everyone respect, and to always try your best at all times.
Try to take advantage of all the opportunities that you will be afforded – especially the ones outside the classroom.
Wood Green Academy is about far more than just what takes place in the classroom. We have an extensive extra – curricular programme covering clubs in Sports, Music, Drama, Maths, Art, and many, many more. You will also be given the opportunity to take part in residentials abroad to Germany, France, and places closer to home. The first of which will be a 4-night trip to Edgmond Hall next Spring.
Alongside a team of fantastic Form Tutors and an amazing Student Support Manager (Mrs Whitehouse), I will endeavour to ensure you are given all the support you require during your time at Wood Green Academy.
See you soon.
