About Southfields Academy
Southfields Academy is a thriving non-selective secondary academy located in south west London. It has recently undergone complete redevelopment and boasts the cutting edge in sporting facilities, art, design & vocational technology facilities, spacious and bright communal areas and classrooms. All of which are equipped with the latest technology and designed by our staff and students to ensure their fitness for purpose to educate the children of today and future-proofed for the children of tomorrow.
At Southfields Academy we are achievement focused in all aspects of academy life. We are in the top percentile of schools nationally for value-added results. We have a positive ethos with an emphasis on teaching and learning. Our curriculum is wide and varied and provides young people with remarkable opportunities to study, develop their skills and, more importantly, enjoy learning. We offer a wide range of courses. Of course, we offer the traditional academic subjects, but in addition to this we offer vocational and work-related courses that can prepare and equip our students with the knowledge, skills and abilities for their chosen careers.
We have a flourishing Sixth Form which offers a gateway to university, apprenticeships or employment / training.
In 2014 53% of our students in KS4 achieved 5+ A*-C with English and mathematics. In the 6th Form our AS and A2 results yielded improvements against every category of grades, the most improved performances across all Wandsworth secondary schools. Over 100 of our Sixth Formers left last year to commence degree courses at university.
In June 2013 Her Majesty’s Inspectors graded the school as ‘Good’ in all areas of the Ofsted framework. It particularly praised the leadership, the excellent curriculum offer and teaching and learning.
We have a number of initiatives at the academy which continue to help raise the standards of achievement of our students. We constantly review and reflect on these to strive for greater achievements for our students.
In 2011 we gained National Teaching School status (one of the first 100 in the country).
As a high performing specialist school specialising in sport and applied learning we have developed cross-curricular links which are motivational for our students and which promote pathways for career opportunities. We work closely with our cluster of primary schools to ensure a smooth transition from key stage 2 to the start of their secondary education.
