Message from the Principal

Welcome to The Bushey Academy.  I am very proud to lead this school and I hope that you can come and see for yourself the opportunities that we provide for our young people.

The Bushey Academy is a successful and popular 11-19 mixed secondary school that provides the highest quality education for all learners.  Our mission is to ensure that every one of our young people leave the academy fully equipped for their next stage in life, be it university or the world of work.  We want all our learners, on leaving, to possess excellent exam results, a well developed character, and great employability skills.

To enable this to happen, we focus on the quality of teaching and learning in the classroom, plus the high levels of care and support we offer every child.  Our hard working, dedicated and skilled staff ensure that our learners are happy, safe and achieve well.  We have high aspirations for all and we expect our learners to be ambitious for themselves.  We want our learners to live up to our motto of ‘Proud to belong’ and we expect our students to show pride in their work, their appearance and in how they conduct themselves.

The facilities at The Bushey Academy are excellent and all areas of the curriculum are very well catered for in our modern building opened in 2013.  We value all subjects highly, placing an equal emphasis on success in academic subjects alongside creative and vocational areas.  We also have a wide and varied range of extracurricular clubs that we encourage our students to attend.  We are part of the Meller Educational Trust (MET) which gives us opportunities to collaborate with other local schools, sharing best practice and learning from one another.

The Bushey Academy has been recognised in recent years for the high standards of education that we provide for our young people, notably by the Department for Education and the SSAT.

Thank you for taking the time to find out about us and I look forward to welcoming you to The Bushey Academy soon.


Jon Hebblethwaite, Principal
