The pages of a prospectus or a website can only hint at what our Academy is really like; it is people and our relationships that matter more than any glossy pictures and clever text. I hope, however, that this website provides a flavour of what life is like at Boston Spa Academy and hope that it encourages you to visit us.
We were inspected by Ofsted in May 2015 and were judged to be a ‘Good’ Academy, receiving the ‘Good’ judgement in all categories, Achievement, Teaching, Behaviour, Sixth Form and Leadership.
We are an Academy that is rapidly improving, with academic standards rising faster than any Academy in the locality, and 67% achieving 5 A*to C including English and Maths. Our commitment to seeing these standards of achievement sustained and progressed is absolute.
Of course we care about our results, but this is not the whole of our mission; we care about the development of the whole person. We are a community that creates opportunity, direction and purpose where young people leave us with a love of learning and the skill to progress that learning throughout their adult life.
It is an Academy community where young people are safe, happy, and grow in self-confidence, thrive academically and make the most of the many opportunities we offer.
We are pleased when we receive external recognition from such as Ofsted, the DfE, the FA or the IEBE, but we’d ask that you don’t rely on their words but discover for yourself.
