Welcome from the Executive Principal

In line with our school motto Aspire to Achieve and coupled with our growth mindset culture and strong ethos, firmly underpinned by our 3Rs of Respect, Responsibility and Relationships and epitomised in our mantra ‘Our School has a Mind to Be Kind,’ we are hugely ambitious for all our students.

On a daily basis all stakeholders strive to live out our strategic commitment, purpose and intent; ‘We are committed to ensuring that all students enjoy reaching their full potential, becoming lifelong learners and positively contributing to society’ and frequently refer to our three core values of Belief, Motivation and Success.

As a school we are on an exciting journey; rated by Ofsted as a very good school in September 2015, we have continued with our uncompromising spirit of striving to improve in all areas – currently ‘Going for Greatness’ in our new School Improvement Plan (see SIP 2017 – 2020) and having self-evaluated ourselves as a strong learning community on the cusp of outstanding (see Summary SEF).

We want all our students to live fulfilling lives, developing a lifelong love of learning and strong appreciation of the arts and different cultures which will enrich the whole of their lives. At Bushey Meads your son or daughter will be extremely welcome, valued and appropriately challenged at all levels. We believe that, working effectively with parents, we can provide the very best for our students in a happy, well-ordered learning community within the wider benefits of our innovative and forward thinking Multi Academy Trust. (For more information about the Bushey St James Trust click here.)

Our desire is that students leave us as mature, independent learners who are engaged and responsible citizens, ensuring that they secure the results to go on to the very best higher education institutions in the world and on to fulfilling careers.

We warmly invite you to visit us and see for yourself.
