Principal's Welcome

Welcome to the Broadlands Academy website. It is a delight and honour to be the Principal of Broadlands Academy. 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 2017 have continued this outstanding success and are an 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. 


We now have our LEGO Learning Centre open, along with a new outside fitness trail. Add to this the opening of ‘Broadlands Bears’, our own nursery school on site, and Broadlands is a school that continues to grow and develop new opportunities for all students.


If you have any questions, would like a guided tour of the academy or would like to enquire about places, please do not hesitate to contact me via the Broadlands Visitor Reception or by email at principal@broadlandsacademy.org
