Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make as a parent, so I am delighted that you have taken time to have a look at our website to explore what we offer at BWA and that you may wish to come to see us in action one day soon. Every day I have the great privilege of being surrounded by happy BWA pupils who love coming to school and feel safe.
Belleville Wix Academy is a very successful, vibrant and inclusive school in Battersea. There has been a school on this site since 1902. We are part of the Quality First Education (Q1E) Trust, a multi-academy primary Trust of four schools which was established by nearby Belleville Primary School. In October 2019, we had our first Ofsted inspection as a new school and were delighted at the outcome of Good overall with an outstanding EYFS.
We have a unique bi-cultural ethos, having shared our site with École de Wix for over 20 years. École de Wix is a French primary school annexed to the Lycée Français Charles de Gaulle in South Kensington. Together we offer three streams on our site: an English stream, a French stream and an English/French bilingual stream - established in 2006. Our sense of shared community is enhanced by building routine opportunities for all children onsite to play together, eat together and wherever possible, learn together. All children wear the same, simple uniform, which contributes to the children’s sense of togetherness and belonging.
As a staff team, we have a relentless drive for improvement, excellence and equality, delivering a quality first education to all the children in our care. We believe in doing ‘whatever it takes’ to help every child succeed. Pupils at BWA are offered an array of opportunities to thrive and to find a passion for things that matter to them personally, as a unique individual. PE, Dance, Gymnastics, Music, French, Art and Computing are taught by specialist teachers to ensure pupils develop their abilities to the highest standards. Every child is also offered the opportunity to learn to play a music instrument and play in a musical ensemble. We have a great programme of visiting speakers, bringing in specialists, going on trips, including a residential in year 6, taking part in sporting competitions and festivals with other schools to enhance the learning in the classroom.
We are all committed to the development of every child at our school; our priority is to ensure that your child is safe, and flourishes, during their time with us, in partnership with you – the most important people in your child’s life.
Our pupils leave BWA as happy, confident and well-rounded individuals, ready to face the challenges ahead. They achieve well beyond the national average. Our Year 6 leavers go on to a wide range of state and independent secondary schools, including those with selective streams and scholarships.
I hope that after browsing our website, you will be interesting in seeing our school in action. A visit to our school will help you with your decision making process of establishing if you feel that we are, or might be, the right school for your child. Please contact the school office on 0207 228 3055 or email email@example.com, to organize a tour.
I look forward to welcoming you to Belleville Wix Academy.
