Our Ethos and Values

Our Mission Statement

WE are a family of schools who exist to INSPIRE each pupil to believe in themselves so they experience great SUCCESS through our commitment to EXCELLENCE. Our philosophy is one of boundless aspiration...the sky is the limit!

WISE in short stands for 'We Inspire Success and Excellence'.



Prudhoe West Academy exists to provide the children of Prudhoe with an education based on quality with equality, creativity with rigour and entitlement with diversity.

Our stimulating learning environment is up-to-date and equipped with the necessary technologies to prepare our children for life in the twenty-first century. It provides a safe place where children can enjoy their learning and grow into confident individuals and responsible citizens.

Learning experiences are woven into an exciting curriculum which is broad, balanced and relevant, where children develop core basic skills which are transferable to everyday
life situations.

Comprehensive, extended provision supports children in developing specific gifts and talents and places the school at the heart of the community which it serves.

Our children have a strong voice, along with their parents and wider stakeholders. The school operates an open-door policy with parents, carers and the local community. All are welcomed into the Academy so that all can participate and share skills and experiences with the children.


If you are interested in securing a place at Prudhoe West for your child, please contact us to make an individual appointment to visit. This will give you the opportunity to see our school in action, meet our staff and children, and ask any questions you might have. You could also watch our school video which will give you a feel for what we’re all about.
