Responsibility, Aspiration, Pride

Serving our community

Shaping young people's futures

A warm welcome from

Our Principal

At The Featherstone Academy we teach the core personal values of respect, aspiration, and pride.

The Featherstone Academy is an inclusive secondary school comprising of 480 students. We also have a Wakefield Education Authority specialist provision on site for a number of autistic children who join some of our curriculum with peers of their own age.  

Our Core Values

  • Positive Discipline

    Traditional values of discipline and respect are an essential part of our ethos at the Rodillian Multi Academy Trust, as we believe these are essential for creating a safe, harmonious and nurturing environment for both staff and students alike. In particular, we take a no-tolerance attitude towards bullying.

  • Resilience

    We aim to help every single student who comes through a Rodillian Multi Academy Trust school develop the skills they need to transition into the wider world as confident, capable and resilient young adults.

  • Contextual Curriculum

    In Year 8 our students study History, Geography, Religious Studies and Media Studies through the vehicle of Contextual Curriculum.  Every year we assess what are the current, domestic and global issues and we study them through the lens of these subjects.
