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.
Bower Park Proposed Expansion Consultation
Over the past year, Bower Park Academy has become increasingly popular with parents as their choice of secondary school. For next September, we have been asked to take an extra class into Year 7, as nearly 200 parents chose Bower Park as their first choice.
Consequently, we are now consulting with parents to expand our numbers to 210 for all future intakes. If the expansion goes ahead, this will also generate funding to help refurbish the school.
Please see the attachment and the link to the online survey: https://consultation.havering.gov.uk/education/bower-park-academy-expansion-consultation/
If you choose to complete a hard copy of the questionnaire, this should be returned to the school office
The consultation closes on 24 May, 2019.
