Principal’s Welcome

Principal's Welcome

“Aspire to achieve, enjoy and excel”

A very warm welcome to Bower Park Academy.  The Academy is at the heart of the local community.  We provide a caring and supportive environment, where students are nurtured and supported to achieve success.  It is a privilege and an honour to be the Headteacher at the Academy, and I look forward to leading Bower Park through its next phase of development.

It is our aim to provide high quality learning for all students attending Bower Park Academy.  This will be achieved by building a strong learning community and culture of learning consisting of students, staff, parents and the wider community.  Underpinning this learning community will be high expectations and high aspirations.  We expect students to be fully committed to their learning by trying hard at all times and coming to school prepared to learn to the best of their ability.  Students will also be expected to aim high and not limit their aspirations.  If they work hard and set themselves ambitious goals, they will achieve success at school.

Our moral purpose is to make a difference to the life chances of every student attending the Academy.  Education has the power to transform lives and unlock potential.  We believe that no matter what their starting point or personal circumstances, every student can achieve success at Bower Park Academy.  Our aim is to ensure that every student is life ready when they leave the Academy by equipping them with the skills, attributes, values and qualifications necessary to lead highly successful adult lives.  To achieve this goal, the Academy will ensure that all students:

  • Achieve excellent examination results:  Qualifications are a student’s passport to success.  The better the qualifications, the more doors of opportunity will open to them.
  • Become valued citizens:  We want every student to develop the values and beliefs to enable them to become valued members of their community and make a positive contribution to our global society.
  • Develop the skills and attributes for lifelong success:  We want to ensure that every student is equipped with the skills and attributes that will not only mean that they can adapt to the rapidly changing world of work, but also have the mindset and drive to succeed in their adult life, no matter what their chosen career.
