Stationers' Crown Woods Academy

SCWA Buildings 2 Dec14

Stationers' Crown Woods Academy (SCWA) opened in September 2014 when Crown Woods College became an academy and joined Leigh Academies Trust. Completely rebuilt in May 2011 and based on the principles of 'human scale education', SCWA consists of four 'home' schools.

It is now in the process of integrating the latest digital technology into the curriculum and developing a multimedia centre to broaden the range of opportunities for all pupils and to develop the skills necessary in those young people who wish to take up careers in the Content and Communications industries.

The four Stationers' Governors of Stationers'Crown Woods Academy (SCWA) have produced their report for the Spring Term.  Click here to read it in full but one extremely exciting snippet is that as of 1 April 2015 Past Master Kevin Dewey is the Chairman of the Governors. This is a huge responsibility and all Stationers will want to wish him well in shouldering it.

Stationers' Crown Woods Academy's latest Newsletter is out and it is wonderful to see the wide range of activities at the school as well as how many of them are supported by or include representatives from the Company.  To read the newsletter in full please click here.

The Company owe a great debt of gratitude to the many who have taken part in the first year of Stationers' Crown Woods Academy by way of generous donations, gifts in kind and of course a great deal of valuable time.

Liveryman Graham Baulch of Graphic Dealers Ltd has very kindly organised  a brand new 3D printer for William Morris School for Art and Design Technology and Liveryman Nigel Southey of Colyer London provided it.  Nigel also went along to the school to install it and give training its use.

Court Assistant Nick Steidl writes: In the first week of February, the head of William Morris, Landia Dhupat, organised a Career’s week involving 270 Year 9 students and volunteers from different sectors of the world of employment.


The Stationers’ Company is delighted to congratulate everyone at Stationers’ Crown Woods College on winning a Pupil Premium Award in the keystage 4 category from the Department for Education.  The Rt Hon David Laws MP, Minister of State for Schools, wrote to Principal Michael Murphy to inform him of the award and said “I would like to congratulate your staff, governors, parents and pupils for their hard work and success”. This is such good news and it is brilliant to see hard work and success being recognised in a concrete way.



Sue Pandit, Trevor Fenwick, Kevin Dewey and Kit van Tulleken are the four Stationers' Governors of Stationers' Crown Woods Academy (SCWA).  They have had a very busy time since the opening of the Academy and have now produced their first term's report.   Click here to read it in full.
