Janice Mitchell - Principal of Boulevard Academy

Principal's Welcome

Welcome to The Boulevard Academy where providing the best opportunities and support for all of our students is at the heart of everything that we do.

We create, with our students, a positive learning culture that is highly aspirational and supportive. Our Academy is a family and we work together to support students in becoming life-long learners and developing the necessary skills and experiences they need for their bright futures. Staff at The Boulevard Academy work closely with students to identify and develop their dreams and ambitions. It is our honour to then work with them to guide and help students to realise these dreams.

Students at The Boulevard Academy are treated as individuals and, through our Individual Learning Plans, receive an education that is carefully considered and tailored to their individual abilities and aspirations.

We are extremely proud of our students and their individual success stories. We hold regular praise assemblies to highlight successes and to celebrate them within our school community. We are exceptionally proud of our students who grasp the opportunities that we provide for them. Our students are always keen to join the many clubs, groups and trips that we offer. Whatever their skills, our students have a desire to participate, enhance their own learning experiences and to improve their skills. In short, our students are active participants in their learning and are proud and active members of our community.

Here at The Boulevard Academy, we have worked hard to be clear regarding our high expectations of students, staff and parents and these expectations are clearly stated in our behaviour policy and our Home-School Agreement. We expect all parents, students and staff to fully support these policies and work closely together throughout our time together. We have a very strong pastoral system and encourage parents and students who are facing difficulties to get in touch to access our extensive support.

The caring yet aspirational culture at The Boulevard Academy comes from the extremely high value placed on the strong relationships between students, staff and parents. We believe that nothing is achieved without effort and that by working together and forming strong relationships there is no limit to what we can achieve for our students.

Our students all develop core values such as respect, kindness and responsibility. These core values are the foundation for developing into young people who are equipped to make a positive contribution to our Academy community and subsequently our local community.

Our accommodation is modern, vibrant and innovative. Alongside traditional classrooms, we have breakout areas for group work, a comprehensive library, a large sports hall, a dance studio, a spacious eating area, extensive outside sports areas, full access to laptops for all students and large social spaces for our students to utilise during break times and lunch times.

We are delighted to say that we are over-subscribed, demonstrating the support and confidence we receive from our local community. It is an honour to be given the opportunity to educate local young people and we are humbled by the trust that you kindly place in us to provide a first class and personalised education for our future generation.

Choosing a secondary school is a very important decision. We encourage you to come and visit us to see and experience The Boulevard Academy for yourself. We are always delighted to welcome visitors to our Academy and new students to join our community.
