At Biggleswade Academy we encourage everyone to believe in themselves through the development of a Growth Mindset. We are a school with very high expectations of all our pupils and staff and we encourage and celebrate this. However, we recognise that everyone is gifted in different ways. Biggleswade Academy identifies, develops and celebrates all of our pupils’ and staffs’ achievements in a wide array of areas, which enrich our community and school experience.
We aim to know all our pupils as individuals, know what their dreams and ambitions are, as well as how they best learn and achieve. We want everyone at Biggleswade Academy to feel as though they are looked after, supported and encouraged at all times by each other.
We want staff and pupils to reach beyond what they think they can achieve and aspire to greatness. We believe, ‘The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark’ – Michelangelo. These words underpin learning and development and drive every member of our school community to achieve excellence and become the very best version of themselves they can be.
At Biggleswade Academy we aim for all pupils, staff, parents and visitors to feel welcome as soon as they enter the School, that they belong to the Academy community and that Academy belongs to them. We aim for everyone in our community to unite together as one and feel proud to be part of our family.
