Welcome from the Principal Designate

I am delighted to offer you a warm welcome to Buile Hill Academy.

I am thrilled to say that this is only the start of the regeneration of our academy supported by Northern Education Trust. It is a fantastic time to be part of our community. At Buile Hill Academy, we place you at the center of everything we do. We are unashamedly focused on your educational outcome and deem that you deserve to achieve the very best grades that you are capable of.

I am keen for you to understand the vision of Northern Education Trust:

We constantly focus on standards as we understand outcomes are paramount. Our decision making is driven entirely by what is best for children. By doing this we enhance the life chances of the children and young people in our care.

English and Mathematics are the cornerstones of our curriculum model as we believe attaining a strong pass in these subjects will open up life chances for you, giving you the opportunity to access a variety of post-16 pathways. However, our curriculum does not stop there. You will be taught more than just course content; we will ensure you develop the skills needed to become an independent, lifelong learner. We will give you every opportunity to succeed in a huge variety of activities in and out of the classroom, including cultural events, sporting activities and community projects.

It is important to me that you are happy and are a confident learner. Our academy is justly known for the high-quality pastoral care that sits at the heart of our pursuit of excellence and guides every aspect of academy life. This is the result of a stable, dedicated and highly effective team of staff ensuring that you have the support you need throughout your school life.


Welcome to Buile Hill Academy!
