Easter Revision Sessions
Easter Revision will take place on Monday 3rd April, Tuesday 4th April and Wednesday 5th April. A letter will have been sent to students in certain classes inviting them to attend sessions over the three days.

Dear Parents, Friends and Visitors.
It is with the utmost pride that we welcome you to Southfields Academy.
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.
Aspire@ is the community arm of the academy and we continue to work closely with our community of primary schools, secondary schools and special schools alongside adult and community learning to engage everyone in lifelong learning and an active lifestyle. In 2011 we opened the ‘nursery@aspire’ to fulfil our vision of ‘lifelong’ learning. In 2014 we celebrated the graduation of our first nursery cohort.
We have gained an Artsmark award for our excellence in Art & Design, Dance, Drama and Music and a National Healthy Schools Award for our excellent catering provision for our students.
As a SCITT (School Centred Initial Teacher Training) provider we continue to train graduates from industry and P.G.C.E. students, many of whom we employ, leading us to be in the enviable position of being fully staffed in every curriculum area.
This year we are pioneering a S.C.I.T.T. centre for mathematics education.
We believe in a true partnership between all stake holders – teachers, support staff, students, parents, trustees and the wider community – to support what we want to achieve: high quality teaching and learning with high expectations of the standards of behaviour.
Our aim is for our students to be happy in their learning and become citizens who ultimately, in whichever path they choose to take, are successful in their lives.
We hope you will visit the academy and enjoy meeting and talking to the staff and students. You will be given a warm welcome.
We are proud to be the Principal and Headteacher of Southfields Academy.

Wanda Golinska [Headteacher]
