“It's a significant achievement to do something as difficult and aspirational as perform one of Shakespeare's plays on a professional stage. Everyone who's taken part should be so proud of themselves.”

Introduction by Lisa Matthews, Principal

A warm welcome to visitors to our Academy by the Principal.
Dear Parents and Guardians

“Education is not the filling of a pail, it’s the lighting of a fire”
William Butler Yeats

Here at Bamford Academy, we recognise and respect the uniqueness of each child. Our creative curriculum skillfully weaves artistic and practical disciplines into everyday activities. Students learn to follow their curiosity, to think creatively, and to work both independently and cooperatively with others. We pique a child’s curiosity and nurture and encourage their innate gifts, while instilling in them a sense of adventure and a hunger for challenge.

In addition to comprehensive language arts, maths, science, and social studies, each student accesses Spanish, technology, vocal and instrumental music, speech and drama, and art. The school also provides a complete physical education programme, as well as after-school clubs and competitive team sports.

Through project-based learning, students tackle a challenging academic curriculum in ways that are engaging, meaningful, adaptable to a variety of learning styles, and fun. Our award winning curriculum is tied to Government educational standards and our results are consistently amongst the highest in the region.

At BA we celebrate diversity and strive to instill integrity, compassion and confidence in each child. We give each child support and encouragement to become his or her own unique self. We guarantee your child will love their time with us.

Visits to the school are welcomed with prior arrangement at the office. We very much look forward to meeting you.

Yours sincerely

Lisa Matthews,
Principal
