Working as part of The GORSE Academies Trust, Boston Spa Academy will ensure that students receive an outstanding education that focuses on aspiration, high expectations and personalisation. Together these non-negotiable values will instil in young people a self-belief that enables students to access the highest standard of higher educational provision and employment. Prior to joining The GORSE Academies Trust the school was inspected by Ofsted and was judged to be ‘Good’ in all areas. However, since joining The GORSE Academies Trust the school has gone from strength to strength and is now rated amongst the highest performing schools in Leeds, the Yorkshire and Humber region and the country.
