About the School
We are delighted that the Secretary of State for Education has decided that our application to establish Bullers Wood School for Boys should proceed to the next stage of the free schools process. This is a significant step towards opening our school and is an endorsement of our vision and plans to provide an outstanding education for boys in the area at a time when there is a growing shortfall in secondary school places.
We look forward to working with our many stakeholders as we take the process forward. Your continued support in our efforts to turn our vision into a reality will be vital if we are to succeed. We will keep you informed as the various stages progress and whenever there is further news to report.
Bullers Wood School is supported through the application process by the New Schools Network.
Bullers Wood School for Boys will be a thriving comprehensive school providing an academic education for boys within the locality of Chislehurst and Bromley. At the outset it will meet the needs of this area by providing a greater choice for parents re: Single sex boy’s education. It will also allow for boys within the community to be educated within the borough of Bromley. Our intention is to have the school located on school land – St Hugh’s Playing Fields. It will be a 6 form entry school, its initial points of entry will be Years 7 & 12 (joint sixth form with Bullers Wood School for Girls). Its key features will be:
- To provide high quality teaching & learning experiences in a modern technologically rich environment within a culture of traditional values, courtesy & respect
- To provide an academic education with an emphasis on the EBAC Subjects and Sport
- To provide extensive extra-curricular opportunities beyond the academic curriculum so that boys can find their niche, experience success and develop self-confidence
- To have an unremitting focus on learning and a genuine conviction that each boy can enjoy success and strive for excellence
- For boys to excel and exceed their predicted educational outcomes
- A strong and caring pastoral system that underpins and supports boys’ academic progress
- A ‘can-do’ culture in both staff and students
