About The Boulevard Academy
Located on the site of the Hull FC Stadium on The Boulevard in West Hull the brand new, purpose-built Academy will ultimately cater for 600 students aged between 11 and 16. The school will serve students from across the city and early indications from the admissions process are very promising.
"To work with all our students to assist them to develop the high expectations, academic and life skills that will best help them to be successful. Fostering personal confidence and happiness, we will challenge students to take responsibility for building a better world for the next generation."
This ambition links closely with the Knowledge is Power Program (Kipp), an educational philosophy which demands the highest standards from student and staff. To make this a reality we will:~
• Ensure every child achieves, no matter what their starting point.
• Set high expectations and create a culture of success to ensure the best outcomes for all.
• Ensure our teaching delivers academic achievement as well as developing a positive attitude to succeed in all students.
• Provide all students with an individual learning plan based on frequent assessment, monitoring and data analysis.
• Have an expectation that all parents and students participate fully in the school experience and actively support the school in its mission.
• We will select only the best staff to work with and for our students because the right people make the difference.
• Demonstrate the joy of learning and the importance of community.
• Have a longer school day and more days in school per year to give additional learning time compared to many schools.
We believe that this approach will best enable our students to leave the academy well equipped in the ‘life skills’ that they will need to be successful in whatever pathway they choose.
