We hope that you find this area of our website of great help in seeking to establish what it is that is making Boston Spa Academy the school of first choice for so many local families.  We are particularly pleased that we are seeing the welcome movement of Boston Spa Academy to becoming, once again, a school which is right at the centre of its own community.  Ultimately it remains our goal to have all children and young people attending their own local school and to see Boston Spa Academy serving the needs of children in Boston Spa itself and surrounding villages.  All indications show that this aspiration will come through to full fruition for September 2021.

The Gift of Choice

Exceptional, without exception

If you are able to visit us directly you will see the outcomes of the first phase of our building programme at the school which has transformed a number of areas including our Post-16 provision, our catering and social areas and our refurbished toilet areas.  For September 2021 we will have completed phase two of that programme, valued at £1.1million, which includes the creation of a performing arts suite and auditorium which will also be an orchestral rehearsal and performance area.  We are very excited to be working directly with Opera North who will be working in close partnership with our pupils at Boston Spa Academy from September 2021 onwards.

We have been determined to ensure that each subject at Boston Spa Academy is taught by a talented teacher who is passionate about bringing their subject to life.  Equally, we are determined to ensure that the range of opportunities available to every student outside the classroom is truly world class.  This includes our rowing, volleyball and karate programmes, our Excellence in Mathematics Programme in partnership with the University of Leeds and our work in performing and expressive arts in partnership with Opera North and the Northern School of Contemporary Dance.

We are so excited about the future at Boston Spa Academy and determined to ensure that our school becomes a place from where young people of all abilities go on to lead great lives with a continued love of learning, kindness and citizenship.
