Values and vision
BBG Academy encourages its students to develop a growth mindset, where there is no limit to how much they can learn. This makes it a school that does not impose limits on children’s development, giving them continuous opportunities to flourish as individuals.
Whatever the speciality of individual students, BBG provides them with a broad education that covers a wide range of subjects. The progress of disadvantaged children is higher than the national average.
“Senior leaders and governors are highly ambitious for the pupils at BBG Academy. Senior leaders have ensured that there is a consistent approach to behaviour management and have rapidly improved the quality of teaching. As a result, pupils are better behaved and are making good progress.”
