Aspire Challenge Achieve


Welcome from the Executive Headteacher

Bourne Academy Aspiring to be Outstanding

We truly believe that the education we offer at Bourne Academy is exceptional – and so is each one of our students.

As a mixed non selective secondary school we pride ourselves on being able to provide a personalised approach that best meets the needs of each and every individual child.

Our belief is that Bourne Academy is a learning centre that encourages students to Aspire, Challenge, Achieve and as part of the wider family of the South Lincolnshire Academies Trust (SLAT), we have access to strong professional partnership links and outstanding educational thinking.

The school has myriad opportunities for children to access study support and extracurricular programmes, often involving working closely with the local community, particularly in sport and the arts - including music, performance and the visual arts.

We expect students to work hard and be committed to learning and we believe in high challenge that is coupled with high support, including exceptional pastoral care.  We also demand high standards of behaviour that allow effective learning and teaching to take place.

Our high expectations for uniform standards, behaviour and student leadership programmes all show that Bourne Academy is aspiring to be outstanding in all we do.


Our successful, oversubscribed school is based upon:

  • High expectations, with a firm, fair and consistently applied code of conduct which is understood by students, teachers and parents/carers;
  • Positive, high profile rewards based on outcomes that all students can achieve, including exemplary effort and behaviour and an outstanding rate of attendance;
  • Strong, mutually supportive relationships between our staff, students and their parents/carers;
  • Developing students’ confidence and self-esteem;
  • A multi pathway curriculum designed so that each student can achieve their full potential in the core subjects together with a wide range of academic and vocational options;
  • Providing appropriate support for students of all abilities;
  • Working in partnership with Spalding Academy to further improve the school delivering the best outcomes for students;
  • A superb data tracking and reporting system providing regular feedback to parents’ on their child’s progress against aspirational targets and on their attitude to learning;
  • High quality, regular feedback to students, both written and oral, with readily accessible information on the next steps in their learning;
  • High quality PSHE (Personal, Social, Health Education) and SMSC (Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural) programmes which equip our students for life in Britain in the 21st century;
  • Investing wisely in the continuous upgrading of buildings, classrooms and facilities to provide our students with an attractive environment that helps to optimise their learning.

Academy life

Aspire, Challenge, Achieve

The ethos of the school is evident in our vision, our mission statement and our values.

It is summed up in our motto - Aspire, Challenge, Achieve - which holds that not only do we aspire to be exceptional in all that we do, but that we will offer the opportunities for our students to challenge themselves and be challenged in order to achieve and to find the things that make each member of our community exceptional and celebrate them. 

A mark of our success as a community will be that every one of us has a sense of self-worth and can recognise and articulate our strengths. 

The values, vision, mission statement and motto have been collectively written by members of the school – first outlined by the staff, then developed in consultation with the junior leadership team and governors and shared and celebrated with parents.

Our core values

As a community we:

  • are ambitious;
  • show courage;
  • embrace challenge;
  • have integrity;
  • respect individuality.

Our vision

Our vision is that every student at Bourne Academy is inspired, motivated, feels a sense of personal achievement and is equipped to pursue their goals and dreams with the personal qualities of courage, respect, integrity and resilience.

Mission statement

We strive to motivate our students to aim for greatness within a supportive ‘family type’ environment based on mutual respect.  We believe that each and every one of our students should be celebrated in both their achievements and in their diversity.

We are ambitious for greatness, actively pursue the total development of each individual, believing that the purpose of education is to develop confident, courageous and capable citizens who will make a positive contribution to society.

The result is that Bourne Academy is a community of learners that accepts no barriers to achievement.
