About Goldington Academy

Goldington Academy was built in 1964 as a secondary school. Since 1976 it has been a fully comprehensive 9-13 middle school. As a school recognized by Ofsted as outstanding the school was eligible to become an academy and converted on 1 April 2011. (Details of our most recent Ofsted inspection are enclosed with this pack). Following approval from the Regional Schools Commissioner, Goldington Academy converted back to a secondary school on 1 September 2017.

The school buildings provide excellent facilities and accommodation for the secondary age range. The school serves an established mixed residential area to the north-east of Bedford. The number of children on roll is currently 780. The school is well resourced, with interactive facilities in each teaching space.

The school is organised on a year basis with a Head of Year in charge of each year group (currently Years 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11). A strong emphasis is placed on pastoral care and students’ behaviour is excellent. Subject specialists have an overview of curriculum areas.
