A new Principal joins Bosworth Independent College

Jason Lewis joined Bosworth Independent College as Principal in August 2020.

I believe that education is a great responsibility and privilege. This website will give you a glimpse of what we offer at Bosworth. We strive to grow well educated, confident and resilient individuals who are ready to become future leaders. At Bosworth, we understand that parents are looking for two key aspects from a school; the support to enable your child to progress to the best possible university and course for them, balanced by a nurturing environment which supports students to develop socially, whilst being happy.

At Bosworth, we are confident that we are able to fulfil both of these aspects whilst providing a third dimension of having our students study in a multicultural environment. Multiculturism is the reality in the world in which we all live in today. Studying at Bosworth causes students to understand and respect each other’s backgrounds and points of view. This is something which they will find incredibly useful in their future lives. It also makes lessons at Bosworth far more interesting than at a school with one predominant nationality. Each student arrives with their own view of what is ‘normal’ and the discussions which ensue once all of these ideas are expressed in one space is truly fascinating.

We understand that to achieve their potential students need excellent teaching and individual support. Our students benefit from high levels of attention from their teachers, their Personal Tutor and their House Parents. All of these people set high expectations for our students, which they therefore share. The encouragement provided by all staff to students helps them to attain their goals. Our academic programmes offer significant flexibility from so that students are able to follow the best path for them through their studies at Bosworth and on to university.

Bosworth is a multicultural and diverse school with high expectations of all who are members of our community. An excellent school expects its students to be inquisitive, ambitious, dedicated and resilient. These are all the traits of our student community. We nurture their intellectual spirit and challenge them to become independent and take on leadership. An emphasis is put on academics and extracurricular activities, as a healthy balance creates a well-rounded individual ready to tackle the challenges of our ever-evolving world.

Bosworth student wins the Harry and Margaret Kroto Prize for Innovative Use of Technology in Science Learning

The University of Sheffield has announced that Bosworth student, Andrius from Tallinn in Estonia has won First Prize in the international competition for Innovative Use of Technology in Science Learning.

The prize is awarded annually to students aged 11-18, from any school in the world, for the best video about any Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics subject matter. Andrius’ video, the Magic of Magnetic Poles was considered to be the very best overall entry.

Bosworth students initially compete with each other to have their video put forward as the one entry permitted per school. They create the videos in their own time, without teachers’ intervention, demonstrating their sincere passion to communicate a scientific, technological, engineering or mathematical (STEM) matter. Bosworth’s maths and science departments are especially high-achieving and so it comes as little surprise that the opportunity to take part in the Kroto prize is grasped each year by so many academically ambitious young people.

The competition is judged by a specialist panel, including senior academic staff at the University of Sheffield from STEM disciplines and staff with expertise in public engagement, education, science communication and film making. Sponsored by the Jacobs Foundation.

Judges score entries on the basis of:

  • Academic Content
  • Use of Technology
  • Communication and presentation
  • Ambassadors for Learning and Science

Andrius’ presentation is especially engaging and fun, explaining magnetism in such a way as to make it interesting and simple to understand. Throughout his time at Bosworth College he has always enjoyed supporting other students with their learning and is known to be gregarious and sociable whilst passionate about sharing understanding of Science. 17-year-old Andrius has been at Bosworth, an independent school on Barrack Road in Northampton, since September 2017, studying A-levels in Mathematics, Further Mathematics and Physics, alongside Economics at AS. He is planning to study Mathematics with Actuarial Science at the University of Southampton from September.
