Working with our neighbours.

Bolder Academy is delighted to have teamed up with Sky, our new neighbours. Together we have been developing some exciting activities that will help prepare all our students for the world of work. 

There will be a wide-range of events and projects that will form an integral part of our extended day. Film making projects, sports taster days, cinema screenings, learning to code and linking up with Sky Academy are just a few of the exciting ways every student will benefit from this partnership.

As Bolder Academy will be literally right on our doorstep, we can see exciting opportunities to be a good neighbour. We have a huge array of skills and expertise here on-site and we are looking forward to support the school in many ways, including Sky colleagues volunteering to help out with in-school and after-school activities in areas such as sport, media and technology.
