Headteacher’s Welcome

Dear Families,

I hope this letter finds you in good health and high spirits. I am writing to introduce myself as the Headteacher of Woodchurch Road Academy. 

I want to begin by expressing my immense gratitude for entrusting your child(ren)'s education to us. It is both an honour and a privilege to be part of this vibrant community, and I am deeply committed to ensuring that Woodchurch Road Academy continues to provide a nurturing and stimulating environment where every child can thrive.

I understand that transitions in leadership can sometimes be worrying and bring uncertainty, but please rest assured that the school is in good hands. With the invaluable support of Cheshire Academies Trust, I am here to ensure a seamless and high-quality leadership transition. My primary goal is to maintain the school's excellent standards and, in collaboration with the passionate staff, enhance the educational experiences for your children.

At the heart of my approach lies our shared values of courage, trust, resilience, grit, and compassion. These values are not just words on paper; they represent the guiding principles that will shape our educational journey together. I believe that by instilling courage, fostering trust, promoting resilience, nurturing grit, and encouraging compassion, we can create an environment where every child feels supported, challenged, and inspired to reach their full potential.

I believe communication is key to our success and, as such, I am dedicated to fostering open and transparent communication between the staff, leadership, and the families of our school. Your insights, concerns, and suggestions are invaluable, and I strongly encourage you to actively participate in your child's educational journey. Together, we can create a strong partnership that empowers our students to excel academically, socially, and emotionally.

I am genuinely looking forward to meeting each one of you and getting to know the Woodchurch Road Academy community. As your child’s first and primary educators, your warmth and support are essential in making this transition smooth and successful. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out. My door is always open, and I am here to listen.

Thank you for your trust and cooperation. Let us work together to ensure that Woodchurch Road Academy continues to be a place where your children receive the best education and where they are prepared not only for academic success but also for a future where they can make a positive difference in the world.


Warm regards,

Alexandra Borrill
