Bobby Moore Academy

We celebrate the diversity of our community through our aspirational learning culture so that each individual can fulfil their potential.


Welcome from the Head of Academy

The foundations of Bobby Moore Academy lay down a distinctive and ambitious start line for every child we are given the privilege to educate. A literal training ground for the 2012 Olympians remains at the beating heart of our school, and every day, all members of our community benefit from the philosophy of Olympism: Our curriculum is carefully crafted to enable all pupils to master their body, their will and their mind, and in doing so, find joy in  their efforts.


Education at Bobby Moore Academy isn't just about that one 'light-bulb' moment in an inspirational Science lesson, or the elation of the winning point in the DRET Summer Cup - it is about the discipline, resilience and planning in the journey that led our pupils to that point, and much more than that, it is the anticipation of what great heights lie beyond the most recent victory. 


Every child in our community is unique, important, special, and worthy of the best this world has to offer, and this is what we work for, in service to them, their families, and the wider community of East London - a world-class education. Educators at Bobby Moore Academy know that they are custodians of the master key; that by imparting knowledge in the correct way, nurturing talents, broadening interests, and shaping good character, we give our children permission to go forth with confidence, independence and fierce ambition for themselves. 

We live and breathe our belief that

We are the drivers of social mobility.

We address social injustice head on.

We are architects of aspirations.

We are unrelenting in our focus on academic achievement.

Our expectations are uncompromising.We craft good character.

We are custodians of the ‘master key’. 


I am delighted to welcome you to our secondary phase website, and hope you enjoy learning about Bobby Moore Academy, as much as I enjoy being a part of this flourishing community.
