Expect the Best

The Bulwell Academy is a vibrant and exciting place to study and work with many opportunities available to our students. We expect the best of and for our students and we will go above and beyond to ensure that is the case. We believe every child is unique and can be successful, and we are ambitious for their future. The education opportunities we provide allow every child to make the best possible progress whilst at The Bulwell Academy, preparing them well for the next stage of their life.

Our dedicated staff are determined to break down any barriers to learning, in order to ensure all young people are successful regardless of their background.

We consistently focus on challenging our students to aim high and be the best they can be; to show respect to their teachers and peers; to take responsibility for their learning; to increase their resilience and to raise their aspirations.

Mrs Strong, Principal

Attendance Advent Competition

It's a busy time of year and it may be easy to get caught up with everything that's going on in the run up to Christmas, but we want to remind students that attendance matters and every day in school still counts! We are running our Annual Attendance Advent Competition to reward good attendance in December. Students will be entered into a daily lucky draw if they arrive on time every day and don't miss a day of school in December. Please click on the image above to view the what your child could win (scroll through the pages to view the full range of prizes on offer every day from non-uniform passes to a tablet device).

Please support your child to attend every day on time in December. If you have any concerns about your child's attendance, please contact the school to speak to the Attendance Office.
