Welcome to The Bulwell Academy

I am delighted to welcome you to The Bulwell Academy. I am proud to have been given the opportunity of leading this school into its next era of education in Nottingham. We are committed to making The Bulwell Academy the academy of choice, where all students and staff feel proud and privileged to attend.

Our core values for our children are aspire, work hard, be kind. We will encourage and remind students regarding these values at every opportunity.

We are developing a community in which young people understand the importance of academic achievement alongside their own personal development and being accountable for their own actions and decisions as they contribute to the wider community in many positive ways.

It is our vision to ensure every student develops a strong sense of optimism, confidence, and self-belief.  We want to ensure all students believe in themselves, have the confidence to aim high, excel in everything they do, and go on to lead happy and successful lives.

A calm and orderly environment in school creates the conditions for children to thrive and do well academically and personally. We make no apology for having the highest of standards for everything that we stand for: the highest standards of education, the highest standards of pastoral support.

And that work is well underway. Our academic outcomes in 2022 firmly placed The Bulwell Academy as the most improved school in Nottingham.

We are proud to be part of the Creative Education Trust, and to work collaboratively with our colleagues in other schools, sharing best practice to further enhance the local offer. This is one of the benefits of being part of such an excellent, forward-thinking Trust. This collaboration will continue to bring many benefits to Bulwell children in the form of providing an extended ‘education with character’, enhancing opportunities for competition, offering wider experiences and broadening horizons.

Working closely with parents is also very important to the success of Bulwell. It is a school in the community, for the community, at the heart of this community.

If you would like to visit The Bulwell Academy or have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to get in touch via enquiries@bulwellacademy.org.uk.
