About West Coventry Academy



May I extend a warm welcome to you and thank you for your interest in West Coventry Academy.

West Coventry Academy is a co-educational, fully comprehensive school that welcomes and nurtures children from all backgrounds and abilities.  It has been created on the site of former girls’ school, Tile Hill Wood, and from September 2016 has welcomed boys as well as girls. This is an exciting time for us - a new beginning. We are proud to build on the best traditions of single-sex education, whilst capitalising on the benefits of a co-educative approach for all other areas of school life.  This provides the best possible opportunities for our students to make excellent progress.

We have a strong pastoral system which underpins everything we do and we believe strongly that a happy child is one who will flourish and achieve.  This is also why we have a comprehensive extra-curricular program and a huge number of opportunities for students to fully immerse themselves into school life.   

Here at West Coventry Academy students thrive in a positive working atmosphere, a climate of mutual respect and an engaging and exciting environment.

I am very fortunate to have a dedicated, dynamic and enthusiastic teaching and support team around me.  Together we strive to ensure that the values, experiences and education we provide enable all our students to fully embrace our motto “Enjoy, Achieve, Aspire”.

Please get in touch to make an appointment to have a tour of our vibrant school community, or visit one of our open mornings.

Thank you once again for your interest and I very much look forward to welcoming you and your child to West Coventry Academy.

Best wishes

Gina O’Connor, Headteacher
