At Bower Park Academy we have the great privilege to educate other people’s children, bringing with it a huge responsibility to provide the best education in an environment where we endeavour to develop the whole child as we aim to prepare young people for happiness and success in their adult lives. We offer a broad, balanced curriculum that ensures students master relevant knowledge, concepts and skills of a wide range of disciplines, whilst fostering a lifelong love of learning.

The Academy is at the heart of the local community, providing a caring and supportive environment where students are nurtured and supported to achieve success. We provide high quality learning for all students and believe that, no matter what their starting point or personal circumstances, every student can achieve success.

In September 2016, Bower Park joined the Empower Learning Academy Trust (ELAT), with Hall Mead School, Hacton Primary School and The Brittons Academy. Hall Mead, as the sponsor, is an outstanding school with teaching school status. The Trust is using best practice development to support all staff across the schools to improve the quality of provision. In this way, ELAT is helping the schools to rapidly improve the quality of provision to ensure success for all students.

We will equip every student with the skills, attributes, values and qualifications necessary to lead highly successful adult lives.
