Welcome to Bulwell Academy

The Bulwell Academy is proud of its heritage yet is firmly placed in the 21st century. We aim to provide an education tailored to meet the needs of each of our students to ensure they are ready to embrace their future as successful 21st century citizens.  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.

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.
