At Boston High School we are determined to do all that we can to help our students develop and achieve to their potential in every way possible.
Boston High School is a school which is proud of the fact that it provides an environment which nurtures and values young people, enabling them to grow into confident, successful adults.
We are a ‘values-based’ school: Our whole community culture should be built upon the principles of aspiration, excellence, fairness, respect, tolerance, care and courtesy.
We aim to equip our students with the experiences, skills and self-esteem to decide on what their future can be – and to gain the qualifications which will set them onto that path. Our students blossom here – they are articulate, focused and determined individuals and we provide an environment which encourages and stimulates individuality and intellectual curiosity.
These ambitions underpin our curriculum and are seen in our Curriculum overarching Mission Statement, which we define as LLORR.
Our Curriculum Intent, Implementation and Impact are rooted in the desire to instil a Love of Learning, create lifelong Opportunities, instil a sense of Respect and develop our learners’ Resilience. Furthermore, We seek to continually develop as teachers and as a school; reviewing and developing delivery, teaching methodologies and pedagogy to ensure our curriculum delivery meets needs – we are a learning community for all.
Qualifications are a passport to our students’ on-going success and the results gained by our students are fantastic – at A Level and GCSE our results are consistently impressive, allowing students to open doors to opportunities and to aspire to whatever they decide to dream of. We do all that we can to ensure students achieve to the best of their academic ability and beyond. Learners at Boston High School, quite rightly, are very proud of their academic success. Of course, this ‘exam currency’ is essential but it is not an end product. We must always keep our eye on the ‘Big Picture’; at Boston High School we strive to prepare students for the challenges and joys that come with a fulfilled and happy life, both here and beyond.
We encourage hard work, participation, self-challenge and academic aspiration. Our students rise to the challenge and are proactive, forward thinking and community spirited. Opportunities for leadership and individual development are offered throughout the school as we seek to support as well as develop students. Our sixth form leadership team, prefects and students set a high standard as role models for the rest of the school and we are proud of the spirit of collaboration and care which is apparent from the moment one steps into the school.
One of the cornerstones of our school is the feeling of community and support. We welcome visitors and encourage prospective parents and students to contact us, to meet our students – who are our best ambassadors - and to experience the school for themselves.
We welcome you to our website and to our school and encourage you, if at all possible, to visit and learn more about our unique learning community here at Boston High School.
