Principal's Welcome

Welcome to the Broadlands Academy website. It is a delight and an honour to be the Principal of Broadlands Academy, from January 2017. I thank Mr Ferguson, who whilst in the role of Interim Principal, has continued to build on the success and high standards of Broadlands. The OFSTED Good grading awarded to the school in January 2016, shows that the school is already on the road to being outstanding and it is my ambition that Broadlands gets this recognition. The GCSE results achieved in 2016 have continued this outstanding success and are enormous credit to all the students, staff and parents involved.


Broadlands is widely regarded as a fully inclusive academy, which supports students of all abilities and with a wide variety individual need.  We are very proud of the positive comments in our Ofsted report about the support given to students with Special Educational Needs.  We are also very proud of the exam results achieved by all of our students, including the most academically able.


Broadlands Academy prioritises pastoral care and student opportunities, alongside academic success for all. I believe in the value smaller schools can have in creating a unique and creative learning environment, whilst also enabling outstanding academic success to be developed and celebrated. Broadlands is expanding these opportunities, building a strong and individual curriculum, alongside new business and community links. 


Well done to Year 11 for working so hard towards their mock exams in Term 2 and all of the students who were recognised for their achievements in the Celebration Evening in December. The talent, determination and ambition of the students at Broadlands is superb and I look forward to working with them in the years to come.


J Hall, Principal
