The Boulevard Academy

Competitive salary to attract the best

Following the retirement of the Principal in August 2018, trustees are seeking to appoint a new leader to The Boulevard Academy: someone passionate, inspirational, and visionary; to lead education and continue to make a sustained difference at our academy as it enters the next stage of its development. 

The Boulevard Academy is a popular, 11 – 16 academy in Hull with just over 600 students on roll which opened in September 2013, on the site of Hull FC’s former Boulevard ground. Many families committed themselves to the Academy long before it was open, demonstrating their desire for the provision of a high-quality education in this locality for their children. From the outset, our goal has been to create an inclusive school which reflects these high expectations and aspirations. 

Boulevard was judged outstanding in May 2015, just two years after opening. We are well-respected locally and regionally, with proven practice and provision at all levels. Our curriculum challenges and inspires staff and students alike. We are hungry for further innovation and development and our new leader will take these strong foundations and grow even more success at The Boulevard Academy. 

We demand the very highest standards from all members of our community and in return we offer an exceptional opportunity for an exceptional leader to play a key role in the next phase of the Academy’s development. You will ensure our habit of excellence continues and as our new leader, you will respond to the challenges of the sector in partnership with trustees and stakeholders, positioning the academy as the provider of choice in the local area and beyond. You will be a visible and visionary leader, with the gravitas and credibility to motivate and inspire all those involved in our work. You will bring a proven track record, with the drive to ensure sustained success of the academy and positive outcomes for all our students. 

For an informal (and confidential) discussion or to arrange a visit, please contact Jo Fish or Rachel Singer, our recruitment partners at Navigate, on 0113 287 8445. To find out more and for information on how to apply, visit

  • Final interviews will take place on 22nd and 23rd May 2018. 

The Boulevard Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and to the equality of opportunity and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
