Welcome from Joan Dean – Chair of the Trust Board
We are looking for a new Principal who will join us on our journey to educational excellence. At Fulwood we put the progress and wellbeing of our pupils at the centre of everything we do.
We believe that a strong academic ethos combined with an excellent pastoral system are the keys to the success of our pupils. The staff here are committed to providing excellent experiences both in and beyond the classroom.
We set ourselves, and our pupils, high expectations and the highest standards for teaching and learning. We aim to grow creative, ambitious and caring young people who will make unique contributions to the future.
We believe relationships lie at the core of that journey through adolescence. They enable a young person to be supported and encouraged, stimulated and inspired. The relationship between teacher and pupil is key to unlocking potential talent.
It is a privilege to challenge young minds with intellectual and academic rigour but we aim to offer so much more. It brings joy to see young people making, performing and creating great music, great drama and great art. Sport also develops those qualities of character and integrity.
The Academy brings an exciting opportunity to transform the learning experience of our pupils with the provision of facilities and resources that are at the cutting edge of 21st Century’s technological developments.
We would welcome the opportunity for you to see our school and invite you to contact David Brookes on 01772 779010 or d.brookes@fulwoodacademy.co.uk to arrange a visit.
We look forward to hearing from you.

Joan Dean
Chair of the Trust Board
