About Sir Thomas Boughey
All parents wish to choose the best for their children’s education, and the choice of a high school requires the most careful and sensitive judgment. We believe that Sir Thomas Boughey Academy has much to offer and I invite you to come along to see the school and to meet the staff at our Open Evenings, our Play Productions, or if you prefer, to see us on a working day.
Sir Thomas Boughey has long had a reputation as a caring school where our high expectation of students contributes much to the outstanding public examination results that we have always achieved. We place a high emphasis on good academic performance as well as firmly support traditional attitudes such as good behaviour and high attendance.
As a medium sized secondary school we can give your child all the advantages of a small community but the still offer the wide opportunities available in larger institutions. We attract students from our local community but a significant proportion of our students attend the school from well outside our catchment area. We aim quite simply to create a warm and happy environment in which all children can achieve their fullest potential. Each individual child is valued, challenged and developed. The school is positive, relaxed and orderly without being repressive, and visitors comment on the unfailing politeness and good manners of the students.
Sound financial management has enabled us to invest in our buildings and infrastructure over the last few years giving pupils the opportunity to learn in the best possible environment.
Our success is based on a three-way partnership of students, teachers and parents, built upon mutual co-operation and respect.
You are assured of a particularly talented and conscientious staff, working in partnership with parents who are informed, interested and committed to the school. With this secure foundation our students can develop and mature into a future generation of young adults of whom we may all feel proud.
