Reception Intake 2024

Welcome to Bovington Academy


Please note the closing date for applications is 15th January 2024.

Bovington Academy officially opened 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 some very exciting changes
to the academy to enhance the educational experiences of our young learners. There are 7 classes
across an age range of 4-11 and we currently have approximately 180 children on roll.

We are proud to serve a unique catchment area, including Bovington and the local garrison between
Allenby and Stanley Barracks. Approximately 60%-70% 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.

Our staff are passionate about providing the very best education and 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.
As an academy, we have high standards both academically and in our expectations for behaviour. We
expect our children to work hard, look smart and respect each other. Furthermore, we have high
aspirations for the children and recognise children as unique individuals with specific talents and needs.
At the heart of our approach is the development of self-worth, purpose and engagement for all children.
Children come to us with different starting points and experiences and it is important to acknowledge
this. We work hard to ensure a sense of belonging is established from a child’s first day. 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 strongly believe that with Big Dreams and Hard Work, Anything is Possible. We inspire our children
to dream about the future while being inspired in the present to reach those dreams.
We look forward to welcoming you to our academy and encourage you to come and visit.

We are now offering open day sessions for the 2024-25 cohort of children
