Are you ready for an exciting new challenge? We are looking for a successful educator with the appropriate level of experience to take on the role of Principal of Bovington Academy in order to take this unique academy to the next level of development.

Bovington Academy joined the Aspirations Academies Trust on 1 July 2019, having been  inspected by Ofsted as a Local Authority school in October 2018 and rated as inadequate. Bovington is a unique school sitting amongst glorious Dorset countryside and serving both the local rural population and the local army base. The academy has enormous potential and we are developing very strong links with the army to develop a highly supportive education for the children in army families.

Aspirations Academies Trust is now looking for a Principal to creatively develop the academy, to embed and develop the Aspirations ‘No limits curriculum’, to grow the school into a 2 form entry school, and to provide a high quality education that prepares pupils for a successful life in the 21st century.

Aspirations operate a very supportive structure allowing Principals to get on with the role of leading their school and to focus on developing a high quality education for their pupils. 

If you would like to discuss the Trust’s vision for the Bovington Principal role, please contact Steve Kenning, Managing Director of Aspirations: or telephone: 07753496548

Application forms and further details are available from Caroline Barringer, The Aspirations Academies Trust, email:
