Message from the Members
In the words of Martin Luther King, we ‘have a dream’!
It is our firm belief that every child and young person can achieve, no matter what their starting point. All the students who attend The Boulevard Academy, with help and support, can aspire to gain the qualifications and life skills they need to achieve their aspirations and ambitions. When they leave school, no pathway should be closed down because they were never given the chance to realise their dreams.
We recognise this is not always easily achieved. The Boulevard Academy serves a community with high levels of disadvantage but with most families who want the best for their children. We have high expectations for The Boulevard Academy and, since opening in September 2013, have a strong track record of appointing and retaining outstanding staff who share our vision. We work with parents and carers who want only the best for their children and recognise what we are trying to achieve and how we are doing this.
We are inordinately proud that Ofsted also acknowledged the value and quality of our vision and what we are doing to achieve it when, in May 2015, at its first inspection, the academy was judged to be outstanding in every area.
After four years since opening, we are now entering the next stage of the academy’s development, confident we are building on the strongest foundations and remain true to our vision.
