Thank you for visiting our website and welcome to Great Bowden Academy, a village school near the town of Market Harborough.
We are a Church of England School at the heart of our local community. We have a strong Christian ethos and are proud of our reputation as an innovative and high–achieving learning community, where everyone is valued for who they are. The phrase Inspire- Believe- Learn- Achieve sums up our approach to education.
Our team of highly skilled and dedicated staff, many of whom are experts in their field, are committed to providing a rich, rounded, creative curriculum. Our curriculum is firmly rooted in the basic skills of English and maths and has a strong emphasis on music and the creative, expressive arts. A curriculum which provides a wide variety of opportunities for our children so that they are able to experience life in all its fullness. Teaching is engaging and motivating, enabling all children to flourish.
Our aim is that by the time children leave Great Bowden they have become confident, articulate individuals, who enjoy learning, are proud of their achievements and are able to make a valuable contribution to society.
Great Bowden Academy is a member of Learn Academies Trust and is committed to providing the very best in primary education.
We hope you find our website interesting and informative and that it gives you a flavour of life at Great Bowden Academy.
Of course, the best way to find out about our wonderful school is to visit. If you are considering a place at Great Bowden Academy for your child we would love to meet you and show you around. Interested visitors are warmly welcome. Please phone up to make an appointment with our school office.
