Welcome to Our Academy

Welcome to Bovington Academy’s website and thank you for taking the time to find out about our school; we hope you locate all of the information you are looking for and that the website will give you an insight into life at our wonderful, vibrant school where we pride ourselves on being friendly and open.

Bovington Primary School was originally a local authority maintained school but officially opened as Bovington Academy on 1st July 2019 as part of the Aspirations Academies Trust and this is a very exciting time for us on our journey to greatness. We have made significant changes to the school to enhance the educational experiences of our young learners. There are 7 classes across an age range of 4-11 and we currently have 180 children on roll. As a small school there is a caring, family atmosphere but we have extensive grounds and are able to offer exciting curriculum opportunities such as Forest Schools and space for the children to play and learn.

We are honoured to serve a unique catchment area – many of our children have a parent or carer who is in the armed 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 all children feel included and able to take part in enriching learning experiences and where parents and carers feel listened to and confident that their children are safe in school.

Our aim is to recognise each child’s individual talents, facilitate their growth and encourage them to be the best that they can be. We also want pupils at Bovington to have memorable learning experiences along the way. The primary phase of education is one of the most important in a child’s education and at the centre of their future development and belief in themselves as lifelong learners. Our expectations are high and we are committed to developing well-rounded individuals who are prepared for the next stage in their learning journey; academic standards are consistently rising as we remain determined to give all children the education they deserve.

I believe our school is very special. We have a team of passionate, dedicated staff and our pupils are hard-working, enthusiastic and proud of their school. We hope that you find everything you require on the following pages and links, however please contact us if you require any further details. 

A place to belong, a place to believe, a place to achieve.

We look forward to welcoming you to Bovington Academy!
