Welcome from our Principal, Ms Claire Edis

We are a courageous, compassionate community – empowering excellence.  We are extremely proud of our vision and values which our young people, teachers and support staff embody day-in and day-out.  

Bolingbroke Academy was established in 2012 to become a centre of excellence for our local community.  I am delighted to say how proud I am to lead our Academy team.  We are a family, and this is echoed by everyone who visits.  Our sense of community runs through our corridors, classrooms and extended curriculum. 

As an oversubscribed 4-form entry academy with 100 students in each Sixth form year group we are small yet mighty.  Our young people advance to excellent university destinations and apprenticeships including Oxbridge, Russel Group and top third universities and top 100 apprenticeships. 

Please explore our website to give you a flavour of who we are and how we live out our vision and values; courage, compassion, community and excellence. If you have any queries regarding our academy, please e-mail
