Welcome from the Principal

On behalf of the children, staff and governors it is with great pleasure that we welcome you to our website - I hope it will give you a flavour of our school. 


West Drayton Academy is a large three form entry primary school serving a vibrant, supportive and diverse community. We are proud to be part of the Park Federation Trust. The Trust is one of the longest established and most experienced primary federations in the country with eight schools in Slough and Hillingdon. All of our schools are graded by Ofsted as Good or Outstanding.


We strive for excellence in learning but we also aim to develop the personal qualities that will allow our children to leave our school ready to make a positive contribution to society. We understand that being successful is often about attitude and the ability to work hard and we aim to instil those qualities in our pupils. Here at WDA, we believe that our ‘Four Pillars’ and ‘100 Club’ provide the skills, values and opportunities to prepare our children for today, for the next stage of their education and beyond. Pupils behave exceptionally well because they are taught well and relationships are strong. Our pupils are energetic, respectful and grateful. Parents are supportive and recognize that we are a team around their child. 


Our motto, ‘Believe, Empower, Achieve’, derives from our mission statement: ‘Unlocking children’s potential by knowing them, believing in them and giving them opportunities to succeed’. We share the belief that our young people are capable of excellence. 


 If you would like to see the school in action then we would welcome the opportunity to show you around and answer any questions you may have.
