Welcome to West Town Lane Academy. We are a 660 place Primary Academy taking children from the ages of 3 to 11 years.  We believe that the learning journey is an adventure, and we are a proud Rights Respecting School.






WHY WEST TOWN LANE?                  

Our school is unique in many ways.  Pupils who attend WTLA leave as well rounded individuals, having fulfilled their academic potential and with excellent social skills.  Pupils at our school have access to incredible grounds and outdoor spaces which are used to enhance our broad curriculum. We have a highly skilled staff team who strive for academic success in a nurturing environment meeting the needs of individuals.  We build on children’s previous knowledge and scaffold their learning. Pupils explore the skills and knowledge of the curriculum through a multi-sensory approach.  Children then have the tools they need to challenge themselves.  Pupils will leave West Town Lane Academy with a breadth of experience, prepared for the next step in their learning adventure.

‘Teachers know their pupils strengths and weaknesses well and have high expectations for them’.  Ofsted 2019

We ensure that in addition to the statutory curriculum, we offer theme days, extra-curricular activities and residential experiences for children that provide an ‘all round’ education.  The school aims for high standards and expects excellent behaviour at all times and in all aspects of school life. We hope you will support this, sending your child to school in the correct uniform each day and ensuring good communication between us.

Staff provide a consistent model of courtesy and consideration which sets a positive tone.  They are unwaveringly patient and firm to help pupils understand right and wrong and how to show respect for others and themselves.’ Ofsted 2019

West Town Lane Academy is strongly committed to protecting and safeguarding children, and expects all staff, parents and volunteers to embrace this commitment.
