Etonbury Academy

Principal’s Welcome

Hello and welcome to Etonbury Academy.

We’re a school where every child can shine. Our children are confident, love learning and flourish here at Etonbury. Our people are dedicated professionals who care and nurture every individual child by unlocking their full potential to be the best that they can be. Our proven track record gives you every good reason to consider Etonbury as the right school for your child.

Arriving in year five, our first-class learning environment provides a seamless education  through to year 13, enabling our children to aim high. We will soon be opening our Sixth Form, offering a first class all-through education.

By encouraging a love of learning and building confidence, we ensure every child fulfils their individual potential according to their own abilities, skills and interests. We believe in educating the whole child – inside the classroom and beyond, by giving them an engaging curriculum and a vibrant and adventurous programme of extra-curricular activities.

Set in rural Central Bedfordshire, Etonbury Academy is at the heart of the community. We’re a local school with a global outlook, preparing young people for the future.

Etonbury’s facilities, resources and specialist teaching are second-to-none. So too is our commitment to pastoral care. This is a place where every child is safe, secure and supported.

Every single member of our learning community – students, staff and parents – are part of our success story. Together we make Etonbury Academy a school to be very proud of.

Our children are happy and achieve their full potential, come and see for yourself what makes Etonbury special. We’d be delighted to welcome you.
