Welcome to 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 for the core subjects and Physical Education, whilst capitalising on the benefits of a co-educative approach for all other areas of school life..

For Students

We believe that our students’ success and happiness in school depends upon us working in close partnership with families and we communicate regularly and personally, with parents to make this happen. Your children can thrive in our ‘ethos’ – Enjoy, Achieve, Aspire.  We have made this central to everything we do. We are dedicated to learning and committed to excellence. Our teachers are outstanding and caring.

They care for the individual and stimulate the children and to nurture their intellectual ability. We have a dedicated Transition team in Year 7 who specialise in making the transition of your child from primary school to secondary school as smooth as possible. We understand that students achieve their best when they are encouraged to do their best, take ownership for their learning, are held accountable and their achievements are celebrated. We look forward to welcoming you to West Coventry Academy.
