About Bovington Academy

This is a very exciting time to be joining our school, on 1st July 2019 we became part of the Aspirations Academies Trust and we are moving onto our next chapter. All Aspirations Academies Trust schools have been graded as Good or Outstanding following Ofsted inspections and the Trust has a strong reputation for maximising schools potential with good systems and structures. We are determined to build on the hard work that has already taken place, be successful, continue to make rapid improvements and provide the very best education for the children in our care. We have real energy and excitement about the future.

We are proud to serve a unique catchment area, including Bovington and the local garrison between Allenby and Stanley Barracks. Approximately 60% of our children have a parent or carer that is in the services and we have worked hard to develop our relationship with the community for the benefit of our children. We pride ourselves on providing a nurturing environment, in which children from all backgrounds feel included and able to take part in enriching learning experiences, where parents and carers feel confident about sending their children.

Bovington Academy is a caring, hardworking and forward thinking place to work. We currently have 234 children on roll from year R – 6, across 9 classes.

At Bovington Academy, we are very lucky to have an incredible learning environment including large and extensive school grounds. In addition, we are extremely fortunate to have the world-renowned Bovington Tank Museum within walking distance. We make full use of this provision and have forged strong relationships with the museum, which has helped to enhance our curriculum experiences.

As a school, we have high aspirations, a strong P.E focus and have worked hard to develop our learning outside the classroom through our Forest School. At the heart of our approach is a focus on the ‘whole’ child, their emotional literacy and providing them with the best opportunity to reach their full potential using a ‘growth mindset’. We offer a varied and engaging curriculum that we believe develops our children, providing them with future skills, knowledge and experiences so they are ready for the next exciting chapter in their lives and education when they leave Bovington Academy.
