We would like to take this opportunity to wish you an extremely warm welcome to Bishop Young Academy. The aim of this area of our website is to help you to find out about your new school and get off to a great start when you arrive in September.

We are very proud of our school and students - they are our best ambassadors and represent themselves and our school well.

High quality learning is at the heart of our school and we can offer you plenty of learning opportunities both inside and outside the classroom. We encourage you to take advantage of these and make the most of your time at here.

We look forward to working with you and your parents/carers to help you to be the very best that you can be.

Over the course of the remainder of the Spring and Summer Terms, we'll be updating this section of our website with new content, including a podcast that will share with you experiences of many elements of school life told by our current students. Keep checking back and keeping an eye on our social media for further updates.

Head of School's Welcome

Welcome from Mr Kilkenny, Assistant Principal

We are delighted that you have chosen Bishop Young Academy, and we are very much looking forward to working with you over the next five years. We can’t wait to get to know you and your family.

We have the highest aspirations for every one of our students and are here to support, stretch, challenge and nurture your child to help them achieve their full potential. We are proud of our learning community and our standards are high - we are sure this is the reason why you and your child have chosen our Academy.

The atmosphere is positive, open and friendly which allows all of our students to thrive, and the feeling of space on our modern and well equipped school site enhances the teaching and learning which exists in the school.

In partnership to educate, nurture, empower

We educate the young people entrusted to our care by giving them a high standard of teaching and setting them appropriate challenges throughout their time with us.

We nurture our students by providing them with a safe, caring and loving environment in which to develop in self-confidence and self-understanding within the Christian family of the school community.

We empower them by giving them opportunities to enable them to recognise their potential and to express this in what they do within the school and in the wider community.

The school’s staff do this in partnership with parents, our governors, local churches, the local authority and – most importantly of all – with our students. We know that we need to work together with respect, understanding and trust within the framework of our Christian beliefs and values.

I look forward to meeting you.

Mr Kilkenny
