About Us

Bosworth Academy is situated on the edge of Desford Village, overlooking the open countryside. We have a full range of facilities including a recently refurbished Library (The Compass), Sports Hall, Assembly Hall, Gym, Drama studios, Music Studios, Sports Dome, Swimming pool, Science Laboratories, Design Workshop and ICT Suites; plus a number of refurbished classrooms and a purpose built Maths Block. All curriculum areas have specialist teaching spaces which are used to enhance learning in every way possible.

The school opened in Desford as Bosworth Community College in 1969, replacing the former Grammar School located in Market Bosworth. In 2003, the College was designated as a Specialist Sports College and The school became an Academy on April 1st 2012, having previously been a Leicestershire Upper School and Community College.

Since its beginning, Bosworth Academy has been a mixed comprehensive Upper School catering for the 14-19 age range. In September 2014, the Academy began the transition to becoming an 11-19 school. This meant that we took in our first Year 7 intake of 150 students in September 2014 and currently our Year 7 student numbers are in excess of 250 and as such are over subscribed.


July 2022

The school was last inspected in July 2022 and was judged as ‘Outstanding’ in all areas. You can read the full report here but below are just some of the quotes from the Ofsted report used to describe our ‘Outstanding’ school:

‘The curriculum is innovative and provides pupils with rich opportunities to develop the skills they need for future success.’

‘Pupils joining Bosworth Academy from other secondary schools told inspectors that they appreciated the better extra-curricular options they had here.’

‘Pupils complete a wide range of exciting tasks to help them learn. Teachers also ensure that pupils have time to practise and review what they have learned.’

‘There are excellent relationships between pupils and teachers. Teachers and pupils are mutually respectful. Teachers consistently reinforce their high expectations of pupils’ behaviour. This means that learning takes place without interruption.’

‘Students are highly positive about their experience in the sixth form. Sixth-form students are an integral part of the school community. They support younger students in and out of lessons.’

‘Pupils are making consistently good or better progress across virtually all subjects. The school’s own records of pupils’ progress and recent examination results support these findings.’
