The school prepares pupils for University
Our aim is for 100% of pupils to achieve at least five GCSEs at A*–C including English and mathematics and for 90% of pupils to successfully complete the English Baccalaureate (six good GCSEs including English, Mathematics, two Science qualifications, one Humanity and one Modern Foreign Language). All ARK schools expect at least 80% of pupils to achieve at least five GCSEs including English and Mathematics.
The Bolingbroke curriculum has excellent English and Mathematics teaching at its core, to provide the strongest possible educational platform for all subjects. We set very high achievement targets for all pupils and organise the curriculum and teaching to make it possible for all pupils to reach their targets. Pupils entering the school with attainment below the level expected for their age follow a curriculum designed to accelerate their progress so that they can participate fully.
The academy offers a full curriculum at GCSE and A level and a selection of other courses to ensure a programme which challenges and meets the needs of all pupils. We expect almost all pupils to continue to study at least one humanities subject and a language up to the age of 16. Courses such as the International Baccalaureate and Pre-U will be considered once the likely demand for such programmes is known.
