A very warm welcome to Bower Park Academy. It is a privilege and an honour to be the Principal at the Academy and I am very proud of our recent progress. The March 2018 Ofsted inspection judged Bower Park to be good across all categories. This is pleasing for two reasons. Firstly, to be judged good after being placed into Special Measures just fifteen months ago is a significant achievement that only a few schools nationally have accomplished. Secondly, Bower Park has never been judged ‘good’ by Ofsted. Our success will not stop here; we will continue to drive up standards at the Academy to provide the best possible education for every student. I look forward to leading Bower Park through its next phase of development.
