Message from the Principal
Thank you for your interest in our school.
I have seen quite a few changes since I became Principal of Bethnal Green Academy. The school today is very different from the one I first walked into in 2007. Back then it was a school with poor standards and an even poorer reputation.
It is a very different place now.
Further to our Ofsted Inspection on Tuesday 11th and Wednesday 12th December 2012, I am delighted to inform you that Bethnal Green Academy was judged ‘Outstanding’ in all categories.
The four Ofsted categories covering ‘Achievement of pupils’, ‘Quality of teaching’, ‘Behaviour and safety of pupils’ and ‘Leadership and management’ all received the highest judgement – ‘Outstanding’.
The inspection report comments that “students’ achievement in Key Stage 3 and 4 is remarkable”. It further states that “the standards they reach overall at the end of Year 11 are higher than those of other students in the country even though the majority start at the Academy with attainment that is below the national average”.
To be acknowledged as ‘Outstanding’ in all categories is an immense honour and places Bethnal Green Academy amongst the very best academies and schools in the country. The credit for this goes to our governors, staff and to our students and their families. We're proud to be an ‘Outstanding’ Academy that serves one of the most deprived areas in the country and we all share the belief that our children have the right to an outstanding education. It's always been our goal to work with our local community and we know that background, place of birth or post code need never be an obstacle in fulfilling your dreams and aspirations.

WinterFest 2014 is a programme of learning activities and events which run throughout December. This year we will support Crisis, our chosen charity. Our target is to be able to purchase at least 100 places for homeless people so that they can have accommodation, food and company during the festive period. Each place costs £21.62. Donations are welcome and you can donate by supporting one of our events or by donating via our Just giving Page here.
You can see our WinterFest programme here.
Winter Holiday Information
The academy will close for the winter break on Thursday 18 December at 12.30pm.
It will reopen for students on Wednesday 7 Januray at 8.30am.
We wish all our students and their families a happy and restful Christmas break.
