Welcome to Bilsthorpe Flying High Academy. We are delighted to be able to share with you our vision and values to help you get a true flavour of our school. We are confident that you will find us a welcoming school – one where your child will flourish and realise their potential, whatever that potential might be. We value getting to know all our children. This means we have a better idea of what motivates them and what success should look like for them.

 

We are committed to providing our children with the very best opportunities and experiences, and we are proud of the relationships that we have with our children, parents and the community. In partnership, we want to provide an outstanding education for the children at Bilsthorpe Flying High Academy to ensure they are well equipped to be confident individuals, lifelong learners and good citizens.

 

At  Bilsthorpe Flying High Academy we believe that all pupils have the ability to achieve wonderful things. Our aim is to ensure that our children are happy and enjoy their time at school. This is achieved by providing an environment where children feel safe to explore the new challenges and learning opportunities they encounter. 

All our staff are passionate about making children happy, developing their confidence and inspiring them to be successful. This passion ensures that Bilsthorpe Flying High Academy is a vibrant and creative place to be. We aim to help develop creative children who are inspired learners, are considerate citizens, are independent thinkers, have curious and enquiring minds and are caring friends.  

 

We care about every child in our school. Through our strong commitment to pastoral care we strive to ensure that we provide outstanding support for all of our pupils and families.  Bilsthorpe Flying High Academy prides itself on supporting all children, regardless of their background or additional circumstances. We believe that a child’s potential should not be limited or pre-determined.

 

In terms of wraparound care, we have a Breakfast Club from 7.45am and are currently implementing after-school provision which will hopefully be in place for September 2023.
