Today, The Bushey Academy is a high-achieving, learning-focused community where happiness is derived from achievement and positive self-esteem.
Benefiting from the double award winning £30m school building, students and staff bring life to the school vision statement through their approach to learning, both in and out of the classroom.

The Bushey Academy now seeks a dynamic, ambitious and innovative Principal to help realise its ambition of becoming an outstanding academy. With a deep commitment to raising aspiration and standards across the school community, this will be a forward-looking educational leader for the 21st Century, determined to make a difference.
