At Bilsthorpe Flying High Academy, our school vision is underpinned by current research, is knowledge rich and ensures our key principles are reinforced in meaningful contexts. Our principles are built around the acronym of WAVE: Wider world, Aspiration, Vocabulary rich and Enjoyment.


Our enquiry-based approach takes children on a journey of memorable learning through rich and purposeful experiences, culminating in authentic outcomes which leave a legacy on the wider world. Our curriculum ensures we are teaching for long term memory. Our key purpose is for our children to know more and remember more.


Fluency in the core subjects, with reading at the heart, enables access to the full curriculum and is therefore integral to our approach. The curriculum is carefully designed through the subject drivers of History, Geography and Creative Arts.  These projects ensure coverageprogression and retention of transferrable knowledge and skills by linking to prior knowledge and building on these solid foundations to accumulate more.


It aims to provide inclusive and aspirational environments where learners thrive and build the cultural-capital they need to make aspirational choices about their own future, overcoming any barriers.
