Although we are privileged and proud to be part of the wider Ark network with the ethos and benefits that come with it we have our own culture and values that is at the heart of all that we do.

We are a courageous, compassionate community – empowering excellence.

Training Opportunities

Our HR and Teaching and Learning teams are dedicated to offering the best development for all staff joining the academy, challenging and supporting staff to excel in their roles. In order to deliver exceptional training, we offer twice as many training days as standard. For teaching staff, we offer weekly CPD sessions which are held on a vast array of topics and run by many staff all showcasing their expertise. To develop the trainers, we ensure all sessions are reviewed retrospectively providing feedback and suggesting presentation and content improvements. We also offer weekly line management for everyone, additional coaching sessions for new and trainee staff and a more regular and developmental appraisal system.

Wellbeing and Inclusion

At Bolingbroke we value the individual and encourage difference. To achieve this, we start with inclusive recruiting practices. Starting from our job descriptions to blind recruiting, structured shortlisting and scoring we ensure that all employees applying are only measured against their skills, achievements and values. We want all our employees to have a voice, these can be heard through the wellbeing committee or diversity group. The Diversity Group promotes diversity within the curriculum, pupil’s school experience and for staff whilst the Wellbeing committee consists of representatives from all departments in the school and highlights issues concerning the staff and supporting in creating achievable and beneficial solutions. All staff are involved in co-planning meaning their input into the curriculum and teaching strategies are implemented. An employee will also have a 360 aspect to all appraisals ensuring peer review and employees to contribute to their managers appraisals. The school is dedicated to training and develop their leaders and staff on diversity and inclusion through a programme of CPD sessions and online training.

We recognise our outstanding talent through half termly staff voted awards and our annual Above and Beyond award.


Like all Ark academies, Bolingbroke Academy will specialise in mathematics.
