Welcome to our website, welcome to our academy…

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 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 and highly motivated individuals and we provide an environment which encourages and stimulates individuality and intellectual curiosity. Qualifications are central 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 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.

'The Chase' comes to Boston High School!

27th March 2015

Excitement came to school this lunchtime as the Students proved their superior knowledge (well, in current Chart No 1 hits) over the teachers when the teachers failed to catch their score. Great fun and laughter erupted as the competitive spirit was cheered on by staff and students. Organised by the School Council alongside a mega cake sale, £141 was made for the School’s Mermaid Fund.

 
World Book Day 2015!

6th March 2015

This year is the 18th annual World Book Day! To celebrate, children of all ages around the world are dressing up as book characters to impress and share extracts from their most favourite books.

People seem to be really making an effort dressing up this year. Just at Boston High School in Lincolnshire this morning we have seen Harry Potter, Severus Snape, Elsa from Frozen, Scout and Bob Ewell from To Kill A Mockingbird and Jack from Lord of the Flies.

The main aim of World Book Day in the UK and Ireland is to encourage children to explore the pleasures of books and reading by providing them with the opportunity to have a book of their own. This means free book tokens!

Designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, the day is celebrated in some form or another in over 100 countries all over the world.

The YJA team gatecrashed a Mad Hatters Tea Party that had broken out in an English lesson this morning. After enjoying a slice of cake, a round of literature, and a drop of squash, we snapped some pictures and asked the pupils about their favourite book. It was brilliant to find out about such a spectacular selection of different books!

At lunch, it was time to judge the amazing array of costumes. First place was a victory to the undead; Hollie Hamilton in year 11 came as a zombie from The Walking Dead. Second place went to Jasmine Slade in year 9, dressed as Jack from Lord of the Flies. And finally in third place was Shelby Hales in year 13, who came as Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz.

So make sure you head down to your nearest book shop and purchase a new edition to your private library. Remember to pick up one of the new World Book Day books with your voucher!


What’s your favourite book?

Last Rehearsal for Hairspray!

18th November 2014

Wednesday afternoon was the last rehearsal for this year’s production - Hairspray the Broadway musical. Despite the pre-show jitters the dress rehearsal was flawless and the real show will be even better!

This musical is about a young overweight teenager Tracy Turnbald (portrayed by Phoebe Mullard, year 12) who obsessed with the Corny Collins show.  Her dream is to star in the show and finally she gets her big break when one of the stars leaves and Corny Collins (Rebecca Vernon-Hirst, year 13) holds auditions for a replacement.  Tracy makes it on the show with the help of her friends however this angers Amber Von Tussle (Megan Lowe, year 13) and her mother Velma (Sydnie Hocknell, year 12). 

Tracy decides that it is not fair that the black kids can only dance once a month on the show so with the help of her friends: Penny (Ava Fletcher, year 9),  Seaweed (Courtney Venables, year 9),  Link ( Grace Marshall, year 13), Motormouth Maybelle (Sarah Flindall, year 13), Wilbur Turnbald (Damien Bemben, year 12) and Edna (Callum Wilkinson, year 13), who are going to change the show.

We were fortunate to be able to interview one of the cast members, Seaweed who told us that ‘it is looking really good, better than expected!’ Also we talked to one of the directing staff, Mrs MacKenzie who said that ‘this is the greatest show BHS has ever seen. Everyone has worked very hard and the quantity of dancing and singing has made it very demanding. Everyone has been committed and highly professional’.

Public performances are on Wednesday 19th, Thursday 20th and Friday 21st November, starting at 7pm. Tickets can be bought from our box office (01205 310505) priced at £7 for adults and £5 for concessions. Please note that the Friday show has sold out!

We wish the best to everyone in the production, as they say in the show business break a leg.

Mr Andrew Fulbrook commented…

‘We are delighted that the determination and efforts from everyone involved with our school has resulted in these superb GCSE results. Most importantly, we should like to congratulate our Year 11 students on their hard work, dedication and success.

This year, which was our largest cohort for many years, 99% of our Y11 cohort achieved five or more GSCE results at ‘C’ or above. This is a superb set of results. Year on year, each cohort is different and all we ask is that students do their best and this group certainly did that.  We are very, very proud of our students, they were a joy to work with and they deserve their success, well done Y11.

We are particularly delighted with the increase in the number of students, and the increase in the proportion, achieving the very best A*-A grades which is up on previous years.

A number of factors have contributed to these results; clearly, the hard work of the pupils themselves. Also, the support of their parents and, of course, the skill and dedication of our teachers and staff, we have a brilliant staff at our school and I congratulate them on their efforts and determination.

We are determined that our students receive the best possible standards in educational provision, care, guidance and support. These results are only part of our success story and we now look forward to working with students as they build on their GCSE success and commence their Sixth Form studies. We wish them all the very best for a future of lifelong learning."

BOSTON HIGH SCHOOL’S A-LEVEL RESULTS

100% PASS RATE & A* GRADES INCREASE

RECORD NUMBER OF FIRST OR SECOND CHOICE UNIVERSITY PLACES


Boston High School students have much to celebrate this year. Yet again, a 100% pass rate was achieved. Furthermore, over 77% of all entries resulted in the award of an A* - C grade. We are also very pleased to see significant improvements in our AS results, particularly the 6% increase on ‘A’ and ‘B’; all of which bodes well for the future.

‘I am delighted that Boston High School students have achieved so highly yet again.  Every student has passed every subject and almost all of our students will be accepted by either their first or second choice universities.  I am exceptionally proud of what our students have achieved this year. Although I have only known these students for a short time, I can honestly say that the Class of 2014 was a pleasure to have in school; the students were highly motivated, were outstanding ambassadors for our school and all worked very hard to achieve these superb results. Most importantly of all, a record number of students have been accepted to their first or second choice of universities.

These results are a testament to the students’ efforts and their hard work and, also, the dedication of our teachers and staff at Boston High school.

My warmest congratulations to every student and my very best wishes to each for a happy and fulfilling future.’

The Lincolnshire Show 2014

18th July 2014

A team of five young journalists and four sixth formers from Boston high School were fortunate enough to attend The Lincolnshire show. The sixth formers were also involved in the ‘Lincoln Red Cattle’ society, giving various different opportunities for each one as they are currently writing the first ever Journal for the Society.

As for the young journalists, they were granted with various opportunities too. They were able to interview, broadcast and present at The Lincolnshire show. 

Firstly, we interviewed a parachutist who had free-fallen from a height of 12,000 feet off a plane. There was a large audience of over 500 watching, and eight other parachutists free falling as well, originally from the Royal Air Force. They made a spectacular sight falling into the Main Ring with skill and precision.

We were also very lucky to get a practice broadcast with the Lincs FM radio, for example, reading news scripts, talking about the weather and various other topics. It was a very overwhelming and exciting experience talking through the microphone, we felt highly professional and the journalism training was worth it all!

Freebies and goodies were also offered to us, increasing our level of excitement! Later on, we played a small game of wheelchair basketball with highly competitive contenders from a primary school. Shockingly, we lost 5-4 to them, and felt sheer embarrassment but it was all worth it. Also, the weather was quite satisfying and warm, making the atmosphere seem lively and fresh. It was great fun meeting with students from different schools and taking part in various activities whilst learning new skills such as squash, tennis, rugby, football, basketball, art, cooking etc

Lastly, we saw the live parade of different types of cattle marching in on a field and being presented with numerous awards. Cows such as ‘the Lincoln Red’ , ‘British White’, ‘Holsteins’  and many more took part in this show along with their owners, some who have travelled many miles to get there. The Year 12s who were working closely with the Lincoln Red Cattle Society managed to get many interviews and photographs for the Journal which will be published before Christmas.

It was an incredible and thrilling experience working with different people and learning new skills such as broadcasting, presenting, filming and learning to speak confidently. We was an opportunity not to be missed - simply fascinating.
