Bowden House School recognises effort and performance both within and outside of the school. A ‘Privilege’ system operates throughout the school and is based upon improvement in academic and social areas of the curriculum with students earning additional activities and agreed rewards. The school’s ethos incorporates principles of structure, continuity and security within which the individual student will be able to maximise his personal, social and educational development and thus improve his life chances at Post-16.

Bowden House School is subject to inspections by OFSTED where standards in both education and care are judged. The school is currently judged as ‘Good’ in both Education and Care (2015).
