From The Principal

At The Bourne Academy, we promise that by working with you, we will strive to ensure your child achieves their absolute best, is safe and happy and challenged to be creative and think.  We are all here to learn.  We will all treat each other with respect, whether child or adult and we will celebrate everyone's successes, whatever role they are in.  Learning is a journey involving making decisions and making mistakes.  It is the discovery of new ideas and new answers.  At The Bourne Academy it is safe to make mistakes and not to know the right answer.

We believe that all students should be empowered to achieve and aspire to the highest, be treated with respect and treat others with respect and enjoy the Academy.  We do not tolerate any form of bullying, whether emotional or physical.  Behaviour which is not respectful or which prevents people from learning, is not tolerated.

Our specialisms of Engineering & Design and English help us to encourage creativity across all aspects of learning.  The quality of learning and teaching is at the centre of our success and the Academy's talented and committed staff will support and work with your child so that they go out into the world as a self-confident thinking person, able to communicate and empathise with others, looking for opportunities to be successful and eager to carry on learning for the rest of their lives.

We look forward to your support in this most important of journeys.

Mr M. Avoth
Principal
