At Bosworth Academy we are proud of our student achievements, both past and present, and challenge everyone to be ‘better than they thought they could be’.

Over the past 50 years, Bosworth Academy has served the community and taught thousands of students – each one unique and with a story to tell.

This thriving community, our alumni community, is one that can contribute to the learning of the current generation of students by helping them aspire to achieve more.

If you are part of this alumni community we want to hear from you. We want to know how your journey has been since you left Bosworth and what advice you can give to current and prospective students.

Our alumni stretches across different job sectors throughout the world and we welcome you to complete this survey and connect with us.

We enjoy showcasing the achievements of our alumni in our e-newsletters which are shared with key stakeholders and to the wider world on our social media platforms. Many of our alumni take the time out of their busy schedules to visit Bosworth Academy and give informative talks along with one-to-one sessions which our current students find invaluable.

These have included:

Emily Scarratt

England Women’s Rugby World Cup Winner and Team GB Rugby 7s Captain 2016 Rio Olympics. Emily first started playing rugby at a young age and quickly established herself as one of the leading women in the game which has seen her collect a World Cup medal and a golden cap for making 100 appearances for England’s Red Roses. Emily showed our students this prestigious cap when she visited Bosworth Academy and gave an insightful talk before a personalised coaching session. Emily would quickly return to Bosworth, this time accompanied by a film crew from England RFU who recorded Emily coaching our students at nearby Leicester Forest Club and unveiling the newly-named Emily Scarratt Sports Hall at Bosworth Academy.

Mike Williams

BBC Radio 2 Sports Correspondent. Mike’s love for radio was nurtured at Bosworth Academy when he would listen to his handheld radio set on the walk home from school. Regular listeners of BBC Radio 2’s Zoe Ball Breakfast Show will recognise Mike as the “sports guy” and it was on the show where his appreciation of Bosworth was shared live on air to the nation. Mike was more than happy to return to Bosworth and give a talk to GCSE and A Level Media students about the radio industry and challenged Year 12 students to write radio ‘two-way’ scripts. Mike worked one-on-one with the A Level students to perfect their scripts and played an active role in the reading out of these ‘two-ways’.

Georgia Proffitt

Programme Developer at Next. Since graduating with First Class Honours in Computer Games Programming BSc from De Montfort University in 2021 Georgia now works in programme development for store technology at Next. Georgia returned to Bosworth Academy to give an inspirational talk on women in STEM careers with our existing Computer Science female students. During the talk Georgia discussed how she had developed an app which works on shop registers as well as moving software on to cloud-based services. Students were shown the technology used in store with a scanner which reads the security tags on clothes that identifies any issues related to stock.

Chloe Lake

Commercial Property Trainee Solicitor at Wilson Browne Solicitors. A First-Class LLB graduate Chloe is currently a second seat Trainee Solicitor within the Legal 500 recognised Commercial Property team at Wilson Browne Solicitors. Prior to this Chloe spent four years as a paralegal within the Conveyancing team. Chloe takes every opportunity to give back and has returned to Bosworth Academy several times when volunteering as a careers mentor. “I think it is hugely important to take every opportunity I am given to give back and interact with teenagers. It gives them something real and relatable to aspire to, knowing that I have successfully navigated the path that they’re on,” says Chloe.

We look forward to hearing from our alumni community who can give inspiration to the next generation.
