Welcome to Bloxwich Academy Primary

Ms S Shepherd | Headteacher

It gives me great pleasure to introduce myself as the new Headteacher of Bloxwich Academy. My experience in education stems over twenty-five years, both within the primary and secondary sector in many local authorities. In particular, Walsall is a region that I am looking forward to returning to, as it is the place where I was born and educated, and where I have experienced some of my most memorable and happiest years.

The Bloxwich Academy motto is ‘be the best you can be.’

This motto encapsulates what we want for all our children to ‘be the best they can be’ with the school constantly striving to make this happen from the very first moment they walk through our doors. As Headteacher, I am honoured and thrilled to be given the opportunity to work together with the whole community – parents/carers, governors, children and staff - to ensure that this continues to be achieved.

Being the Headteacher makes me feel extremely proud and enthusiastic about our shared journey ahead.
I look forward to meeting you all.
