Buile Hill Visual Arts College

Buile Hill Academy is a warm, friendly and inclusive school that cares about our pupils and all the people in our ‘Buile Hill Family’.

Our mission is to provide our pupils with a positive culture in which they all have the chance to be successful, embodied in our motto ‘Opportunities for All’. We are a school that has high expectations and aspirations for everyone!

Our pupils benefit from high quality teaching and excellent pastoral care. Pupils follow an exciting Key Stage 3 curriculum that ensures academic rigour through the EBacc but also shows a strong commitment to the arts, physical education and technical studies.

At Key stage 4 all pupils have the opportunity to follow the right qualifications for them, ensuring that all can leave well prepared for the next stage of their education or training. In addition all pupils receive the education in personal development they need to be ‘Ready! Respectful! Safe!’ through our innovative PSHE programme. Our outstanding career guidance and advice supports pupils throughout their time at Buile Hill and as a result our pupils leave us at the end of Year 11 ready for college, apprenticeships and university.
