About Us

Our Vision

The Academy provides a safe and welcoming environment that supports and encourages an ethos of aspiration, achievement, respect.

We will be the Academy of choice for students, parents, carers and staff through academic excellence. All students will make positive progress, which will enable freedom of choice for their progression beyond the Academy. By working in partnership with parents, carers and the wider community, we will ensure that students leave Winifred Holtby Academy as independent and resilient individuals.

We are determined to deliver continuous improvement by achieving excellence in all that we do. Our students will be proud of their outcomes, safe and confident in the knowledge that they are equipped with the skills required for life, future learning and employment.

We will embrace diversity through mutual respect for each other and an understanding of our differences. Students are expected to make an active, positive contribution to Academy life and beyond. Winifred Holtby Academy’s positive reputation will ensure that we are a valued member of the community we serve.
