Welcome to The Bulwell Academy

In June 2015, Ofsted recognised The Bulwell Academy as a "Good" school.  Two further independent inspections of the school in the early Summer of 2016 have endorsed excellence with the School being awarded the Inclusion Quality Mark and Career Mark Quality Standard. The vision of the academy is one where everybody will aim to achieve the highest standards and where the academy will maximise everyone’s potential. This can be summed up by our vision statement: “Everyone Achieves”.

Our proactive approach to developing positive outcomes for our students has been recognised by business leaders and we were awarded the 'School of the Year Award' by the Derbyshire & Nottinghamshire Chamber of Commerce in October 2013.  We are recognised as leaders in developing strong business partnerships to enable the best outcomes for our students.

This academy is for the benefit of the community of Bulwell and its surrounding areas. We wish to bring outstanding teaching and learning to the benefit of our students and we will continue to welcome change and development to achieve this.

Ian Williams, Principal
