Welcome to Haven High Academy, a place of high expectations with a clear vision and a strong sense of values. Our core purpose is to provide students with a world class education to ensure that they enter the world of work or higher education with the required skills to be successful. We care passionately about each individual member of the Academy community and take great pride in working together as a team to ensure individual success is achieved. We are privileged to educate our students and will endeavour to do whatever it takes to ensure these young people achieve their true potential.
Our world is ever changing and we are an adaptive organisation with strong leadership which endeavours to maintain a “world class” education despite the circumstances. The recent COVID-19 pandemic is a great example of how we were able to adapt by developing a high quality teaching platform using Microsoft Teams 365 before “lockdown 1” was announced. The proactive staff team embraced change and delivered more than 15,000 remote student lessons on a weekly basis. We continued to support our collective mental health by providing regular catch up calls and encouraging acts of kindness within our community.
Some members of our academy require additional support and in recognition of this we remained open every day during the pandemic offering high quality face to face education for those who most needed it. Our holiday clubs were well received and fun was had by all including the staff. Our Additional Learning Faculty is a unique aspect of the academy providing specialist education for all those in need, with a particular focus on the acquisition of language, grammar, numeracy and reading skills.
We know that strong academic qualifications matched with an all-round education will enable our students to succeed in a competitive employment market. Youth unemployment is increasing and it is more important than ever that we provide each individual with the knowledge and understanding to be successful following their graduation from our academy. Our Director of Aspiration and the Future Zone will support your child to develop those essential insights to life.
School should be enjoyable and we know that happy students are more likely to be successful. It is our responsibility to bring out our students’ talents, to broaden their interests and to develop their personal qualities. Our formal curriculum and co-curricular activities will provide students with the opportunity to fully develop their talents.
We are truly excited about the future of our academy and the success it will bring to the wider community and will continue to work intelligently and collaboratively to provide a remarkable experience for our students. Many aspects of the future remain uncertain however you can be assured that the vision and values will be maintained at Haven High Academy regardless.
I look forward to meeting you in the future.

Ethos and Values
Haven High Academy is proud to be an academy with a culture of high expectations which are embedded in a strong sense of value and family. We are not an academy based around individual rules and regulations but rather one of mutual respect, care and the values of PRIDE. We created these values of progress, resilience, integrity, disciplined and excellence and everything that we do is supported by that simple but immensely powerful mnemonic.
Students and staff understand and support the spirit of the academy, as a result, our diverse family live in harmony together and all stakeholders are focused on the most important aspect of a “world-class education”. We all understand the competitive nature of the working world and endeavour to provide the skills, knowledge and understanding to our students to enable them to be “successful citizens of the future”.
We recognise the importance of developing the “whole child” and have created a culturally rich curriculum which supports students in both their academic and co-curricular pathways. We are committed and determined to provide an outstanding quality of education for the students of Boston. Our approach to character education is unique often leading to the development of life skills which are no longer considered by all to be part of mainstream education, but we know they are vital.
We strive to deliver complex ideas and strategies in a way that is accessible to everyone and ensure the safe and efficient operation of our academy. Our culture is based around the principle of “continuous improvement” and to that end, the students have a key voice in determining the future direction of the school.
