About Sir Thomas Boughey Academy
Welcome to Sir Thomas Boughey Academy; a safe, happy school where students genuinely want to learn and reach their potential, a school where committed and highly motivated staff inspire students to achieve anything they set their mind to.
Our overarching belief as a school is that every child has the right to an exceptional education, and the opportunity to flourish under the guidance of our devoted staff. We build confidence and character, qualities all children need just as much as they do their grades. Our number one goal is that every student leaves us having gone beyond their potential, armed with the resilience, ambition and integrity that will allow them to create whatever future they want, and deserve.
Sir Thomas Boughey is a true community school: we have close links with members of the community, community events and we are always looking to further develop community links. For example, in Summer 2018 we held a community fun day in the summer holidays, where free entertainment was provided to young people (and their parents / carers / grandparents) in the community.
Staff turnover at Sir Thomas Boughey is incredibly low, which is largely due to the supportive, caring environment. We have a number of staff who were once students at the school and they were eager to return as teachers in order to continue to offer the support, care and guidance that they experienced as students. Staff development is also a key priority and we offer a comprehensive and bespoke CPD package. Being part of United Endeavour Trust also provides additional opportunities for collaboration and Continued Professional Development. Many staff have experienced internal promotion, including a number of staff who started as a Newly Qualified Teacher and progressed to the Senior Leadership Team, thus demonstrating the range of career opportunities that are available at Sir Thomas Boughey Academy.
