Stationers' Crown Woods Academy (SCWA) opened in September 2014 when Crown Woods College became an academy and joined Leigh Academies Trust. It is the Company's most significant charitable activity since the opening of the first Stationers' Company's School in Fleet Street in 1861.Completely rebuilt in May 2011 and based on the principles of 'human scale education', SCWA consists of four 'home' schools.
The academy is the first school in the UK to specialise in digital media and will produce generations of school leavers with an understanding of, and an interest in, the Communications and Content industries. It is in the process of integrating the latest digital technology into the curriculum making use of the Digital Media Centre funded by the Company and by Leigh Academies Trust.
