Our school has a very special energy that comes from the contagious enthusiasm for learning across all subjects; this extends well beyond the classroom through the many independent project groups, academic clubs and societies that flourish at school on a daily basis. Borlasians aspire to achieve their best academically and are unashamedly ambitious in those aims; high achievement comes from the genuine enjoyment of learning and we are committed to fostering that enjoyment in and outside the classroom.
We embrace education in its broadest sense encouraging excellence in sport, in music, dance and the arts, in engineering and scientific innovation and in political and philosophical thinking and discussion. Borlasians are encouraged to be busy, to participate in life to the full, to seize opportunities and to create opportunities for others. In this environment our young people thrive, developing new experiences, growing into confident contributors and leaders and building lifelong friendships.
