Our School:

Sir Thomas Boughey is an academy where we all strive for excellence. We have a real sense of community, and being part of the community is incredibly important to us. Ofsted 2022 concluded that, ‘Pupils are happy to come to this welcoming, inclusive school’ and it is a school where, ‘Differences are celebrated, and pupils feel valued. One pupil said that it ‘is fine to be different here’ ‘(Ofsted 2022).

As part of our school improvement journey, we have clear plans to ensure that outcomes continue to improve, and we are pleased that GCSE outcomes in Summer 2022 far exceeded outcomes in Summer 2019 (pre-Covid). Our team approach is evident in everything that we do, and this has been a key factor in securing school improvement in recent years.

As part of UET, you will be open to opportunities to develop as an individual within the school but also across the Trust itself, through our Trust Training Academy.
