Leadership Team

Adele Clark | Headteacher

As Headteacher, I am responsible for the day to day running of Woodlands. My work is about ensuring we provide high quality teaching and learning that enables all children to be successful. I work with Senior Leaders and all the staff to ensure high expectations in learning, behaviour and attendance are maintained and that we provide a safe and happy academy that meets the needs of all our pupils. You can find my Headteacher’s Welcome here.

Poppy Lewis | Deputy Headteacher

I am a Deputy Headteacher who is excited about shaping the future of education, for our student pioneers. My main responsibilities are for English, educational experiences and I am the Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT) mentor and staff governor. I believe passionately about the power of education and that education is one of the only things that can never be taken away from you. I hold strong faith that we must do what matters most, to ensure that every child has the ability to be successful.

Thomas Trower | Assistant Headteacher

As Assistant Headteacher, my main responsibilities are for the teaching and learning of the Foundation Subjects, supporting Newly Qualified Teachers and trainee teachers as well as working collaboratively with Senior Leaders and the staff team. I believe that we as teachers need to lead by example in being reflective to help us be our best selves always; doing what matters most to help the school community succeed together.
