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.
Now that Boulevard is well established, we are delighted the academy has been given the opportunity and support from Hull City Council and the Department for Education to be able grow significantly in size, with a building programme that will enable the academy to admit up to 900 pupils and provide more specialist classrooms to offer a wider curriculum. Members look forward to this next stage in the academy’s development.
